myself extremely fortunate to have found Mike and
retained his services. His talent, skill, and dedication
to craft are evident in every frame of video, working
with him is a pleasure, and his animations have been
invaluable to my current endeavors as an inventor and
requirement of my work is to communicate to prospective
investors and customers an understanding of how complex,
future technologies will work, and there is simply no
better way to do that than through video animation. The
animations that Mike created for me are absolutely first
rate and have been extremely effective in my
presentations. In almost every meeting, someone comments
on how amazing the animations are, and no one seeing
them has ever questioned the technical feasibility of
the technologies depicted.
I would urge
anyone who has a business need to communicate to others
how a piece of technology will work to have Mike show it
through animation. If a picture is worth a thousand
words, an animation is worth a million, and Mike is the
one to do the "talking" for you..”

an amazing 3D animation for a piece of fitness
equipment. Not only that - he was able to visually
explain the science that made the product special in a
way that was easy for the viewer to understand and that
increased the production value of the show we were
working on 10 fold. Oh and he did it - on time and on
budget!! What else is there to say? Mike is amazing.”

"Mike: kudo...last Friday Ron used
the animation to explain to upper level managers and
financiers of the Docklands Light Rail (London) City
Airport Extension, which we are signaling. Ron found it
very easy to use and was "blown away" with it.
The audience was not only impressed by the quality of
the animation, but more importantly quickly understood
the essence of the technology.
We left a very favourable impression."

1996, Mike Efford’s computer animation helped me breathe
life into a dreary TV program I was reworking for a
client in Tokyo. I should explain: my company imported
Japanese-language TV programs and totally rebuilt them -
making them faster, sharper,with better computer
animation - in order to sell them into the rough,
competitive world of international markets. Mike’s
animation helped secure my client’s satisfaction and
brought me repeat business through many projects and
