Many times, we’ve benefitted from the ridiculously awesome services of Mad Bird – most recently, the terrific motion design work of Patrick Neary. But Mad Bird’s ranginess extends to high end cinematography (Neary’s been known to shoot features with a SteadyCam while riding backwards on a Segway), award-winning still photography, and many different kinds of animation. When you’re talking to Mad Bird, you’re talking to complete filmmakers.
