Summer 2008

An Explosive Year For Digital Alchemy Entertainment!

DA designs, creates and animates for TV, Film, Games and more!


Gone are the days when animation and visual effects were reserved for horror films and science fiction.  Today, it seems that everything from reality TV to documentaries and commercials include this medium to enhance the quality and entertainment value of their productions.  With the opportunities we've had in children's animated series, games, commercials, documentaries and film, Digital Alchemy is proud to be a part of this expanding industry.  Currently in our sixth year of business, Digital Alchemy is growing strong.  With our studio capacity of over 40 employees, we have had one of our most successful years to date.

“The videos you have produced…  are fantastic.  The animation, the music, the artistry, capture the viewer's imagination…  Explaining science…  is not easy and we think these videos represent a new level of communication that will become the norm in science and teaching.  The concepts in the videos represent the cutting edge of research in particle physics, nuclear physics, nuclear medicine and material and molecular science.  These videos are by far the best attempt we have made to communicate our raison d'etre.
Thank you again and it was a true pleasure working with you, and thanks for the great coffee.”
