All about us

Who we are and how we got here…

Synima was founded in London by Quint Boa and Matt Giles over 20 years ago. Our business, and our industry, has changed a lot since then. We’ve seen rapid improvements in image quality, the explosion of social media as a communication medium, and new digital tools that have brought Hollywood quality effects to limited-budget productions.

We’ve been proud to offer the benefits of these advances to our customers, and inspired as our ideas have grown to embrace new expectations of what is possible. It’s taken us around the world as we’ve developed into a global operation. From humble beginnings in London, we now also have established offices in New York, Los Angeles and Amsterdam.

Synima’s global expansion is a reflection of our success and the universal appeal of our approach. Perhaps more importantly, though, it reflects what we believe is necessary to serve global clients with top-level video and animation in todays world. We think a physical presence, staffed with experts in the craft, as well as the region, are part of what makes us special.

Make no mistake, it is the team at Synima that has always been key to the company’s success. We pride ourselves on our people. Clients know us for our exceptional work ethic, enthusiasm and love of our craft. Should you choose to work with us, you’ll find these values at every level of our organisation. It’s something we prioritise above all else.

Technology is changing at a pace that’s hard to keep up with. At Synima, we always regard technological advance as a great opportunity.

The advances in Artificial Intelligence have raised questions about ethics and quality. We believe the best work will combine human taste and creative spirit with the computing power of machines, and our team relish the changes that are coming.

Our ability to blend technology with creative vision has always served us well. It has been the foundation of our business and earned us a reputation we look to uphold every day. It’s in our DNA and we expect that to continue and develop as new technologies become available.

So while we continue to evolve and expand, we remain focused on the things that really count: delivering unparalleled service and best in class content that keeps some of the world’s leading companies coming back for more.
