Karl Baudoin – The Big Balloon to the Moon (June 14th, 2022)

“For my latest release The Big Balloon to the Moon, I always had in mind an animated music video so I shopped around the internet for quite a while and then I found Anders Sundstedt. Here was an artist who had his own voice, his own unique style and it seemed to fit perfectly with the imagery I had in mind for my music. He immediately understood the visual elements that would do the trick and I believe he was the only one to be able to instill the poetry I was looking for. Anders is a rare and very sensitive artist who pays attention to every tiny detail while delivering a profound work that appears simple on the surface. And that is exactly what I try to do with my music. So, maybe it’s not surprising after all that we were selected in seven festivals and won four in a matter of weeks. More to come? Thank you Anders, you did much more than expected and in such an elegant way.”

SOFI K – Fall Back Down (Official Lyric Video) (June 18th, 2020)

“Anders is an amazing artist and animator! I had the pleasure of collaborating with him on a song I produced for Sofi K called “Fall Back Down”. The level of hard work and detail that he put into our music video was unbelievable. He is communicative and gives you detailed descriptions and options of ways to make something work. We were blown away by his talent and the way our video came out. I think Anders is doing great things in the world of animation and will continue to impress the people he collaborates with. I’m hoping to work with him again in the future.”
Bryce Harding

The Lark and the Loon – The Old Red Rooster (2018)

“It is without a doubt that I can say Anders is a unique animator because his goal is not to finish a project and move on, it’s to make something he enjoys to make and has pride in and the final product shows us his love of animation.”
Jeff Rolfzen

Animated Music Video Production Quote

Looking for an animated music video maker? Music videos are big business. There is a rising trend of animated music videos on the market and animation is becoming a popular way to create explosive music videos. Most animation projects demand a great deal of both effort and time. But how much does an animated music video production cost?

Kÿpe – Poka – Animated Rap Music Video (2020)

Animated Rap Music Video Artist Testimonial - Sundstedt Animation

There really isn’t a standard cost for a handcrafted animated music video! This is because every music video or lyric video Anders Sundstedt makes really is made 100% from scratch, so the price depends on many things, for example the complexity, level of detail, visual style and the number of shots/scenes and characters. By providing us with enough details about your music video project, such as the song length and a script idea, basic storyboard or synopsis, we can then provide an animated music video estimated range for your 2-5 minute professional, handcrafted, 100% custom made, animated music video from Sundstedt Animation. To get started, what most people do is complete this form with details, budget, video length and timeframe. And we’d love to work with you!

HAMMER – The Black Sheep (Official Music Video) (2019)

“Great collaboration between HAMMER and Sundstedt Animation Studio for the animated video of the song Black Sheep, taken from the new album Space Invader with the old time mascot Wrong Way Willy as himself. Anders did a great job catching very well the 80’s mood of the band. The black and white colour screen makes the video be more violent than we could have believed. He was in contact with us showing completed scenes and screenshot of new scenes during all the working process and that is what we wanted. I hope we can work together again in the future.”

From June 2018, UK singles chart includes music videos downloaded or streamed online for the first time.

Until now, only audio was counted for the UK singles chart, not music videos. Since YouTube launched, the streaming site has seen 20 music videos break the two billion views mark. But none of these views ever counted towards the song’s position on the UK singles chart. This changed on Friday when the Official Charts Company overhauled its rules to include music video streams and downloads for the first time. At Sundstedt Animation, we have created many award-winning and nominated animated music videos and animated music videos with lyrics. Your animated music video can have no animated lyrics, partial lyrics or full lyrics, depending on your preference.

This now makes having a unique, quality music video important to help rank in the charts. Since music listening is changing and the way we consume music, video is now very important and it’s likely that more countries are going to start including music videos for their singles charts. So why not get in touch to discuss your music video needs?

Animated Music Video Testimonials

“I commissioned Anders Sundstedt to produce a music video for my new single called Lush and what he came up with was simply outstanding. It wasn’t an easy video to begin with. It centered on a story about a blind girl who lost her doll. Anders illustrated it brilliantly, creating a lovable character that will elicit empathy and compassion from viewers. This, combined with picturesque scenery and some lovely animals, made for a stunning video that truly befits the title of the song. But the video aside, what I find really remarkable is Anders’s tireless work ethic. He worked non-stop, constantly providing me with updates on the scenes that he’s completed and the progress that he’s made. You’ll never have to guess where he’s at. I would love to work with him again and I would recommend him to anyone. I must say the scenery, the backgrounds are stunning. The rest of it is lovely.”
Razali Abdullah
The Mother (Band)

“Anders was a pleasure to work with. From the outset, we agreed on a budget, timeframe and detailed storyboard for the project. All was documented as a matter of record for both sides. Anders gave regular updates throughout the creative phase and called out where possible any limitations and a proposed remedy for the same. He completed the project on time and within budget and has been supportive in any follow-up and change requests. Anders is a total professional and a talented creative that I would be happy to work with again.”
