Nectar Motion is a bespoke studio, founded by Michael Woodruff, driven by a love of storytelling and crafting visuals. Believing in engaging, playful and informative design ideas to bring to life the power of motion graphics.

Over an 18 year career both direct to client and through the worlds’ top studios & agencies, Michael and Nectar have crafted work for some of the planets biggest brands and media companies. From BBC to Mercedes-Benz, National Geographic to HSBC and The Science Museum to GHD. Skilled in Film&TV, Documentaries, Animation, Advertising, Nectar specialise in After Effects workflows, but use the whole range of 2D and 3D tools in an ever changing landscape, from concept to final shot delivery.





Mike is a hugely talented freelance VFX Designer/Supervisor. I've worked with him frequently in TV production companies on a variety of projects and he has consistently delivered surprising and impressive solutions to a range of 2D and 3D graphic design requirements for broadcast work and digital media. This includes digital matte paintings, explainer graphics, digital maps, title sequences, motion photos, compositing, pitch documents, teasers, apps and websites. Mike's reel demonstrates perfectly his creative approach to any design brief. On top of this Mike is a lovely chap, good fun and totally dedicated to his craft, and would easily drop into any size production or project at a production company or animation studio. There are very few one-man band 2D/3D outfits like Mike that can deliver shots from storyboard through to final delivery so I imagine he will be very much in demand! 

Mike is creative, reliable and enthusiastic. His high-quality work is always delivered on-time and without any bother. I've found mike to be highly reliable and will go above and beyond the brief in search of excellence. He is also a thoroughly nice chap and can't recommend him highly enough.

Michael is a modern-day superhero… of the digital advertising world. I had the pleasure of working with Michael at Saatchi & Saatchi, where he was brought in to help get a beast of a project out the door. During my time working with Mike, it was clear that he was an expert in motion graphics, VFX, animation, green screen, grading and everything in-between. His knowledge in these areas was key to ensuring we were able to get the project out on time and to the quality expected of Saatchi. Mike would be an asset to any team and I cannot recommend him enough.
