Beautiful TV is expanding its boutique motion graphics operation with a re-furb, some new technology and two new members of staff.

£18,000 is being spent on a re-fit of the company's Margaret Street studio and Mac Pros running BlackMagic Decklink, After Effects and Cinema 4D.

The new staff are designer Roxanne Silverwood, who joins from Kemistry, and 3D animation graduate Markos Christodoulou.

Commercial director Tom Roebuck said: "January is looking to be our best month of trading so far, business has never been better. As budgets get cut broadcasters are looking for greater value from their suppliers and a streamlined team like ours can provide that."

Recent clients wins include The History Channel (including a promo for the famous 'World At War' series - pictured), Jetix and Paramount Comedy.
