Our story started 20 years ago as an infographics and software development company. Today, by pursuing our passion for animation, KANDOR is on its way to becoming one of Europe’s foremost animation production studios.
KANDOR Graphics began in 1992 when Melkor, a technological company dedicated to software development and computer animation, was created.
During our time as Melkor, we acquired experience in our field and gained recognition for the quality of our work. We created simulations for the scientific, medical and artistic industries, designed virtual sets, corporate videos, documentaries and then digital effects for movies. Our client list at that time included international brands such as NASA, FBI, FOX, JOHN MALKOVICH, FILMAX, BRB, among others.
Due to the recognition we have received, our artistic growth and the passion of our founders, in 2002 we established KANDOR Graphics, which today is a CGI animation film company which produces product for global audiences and competes in the international world of animation cinema.
