making the impossible possible
29 years ago, when the computer animated dinosaurs of Jurassic Park were not even conceived yet, three idiots left good paying jobs in Kuala Lumpur, to take their place among the pioneers of computer graphics in Malaysia. They were going to revolutionise animation in the country - so they thought. That was in 1991.
Since then, Code Computer Design Sdn Bhd has toiled and trudged, gone down, come up, and down again, and… oh, you know how it is.
Despite all that, we have produced some dazzling and innovative computer graphics, educational films, and international documentaries over the last two decades.
No, we have not won any awards, nor received international prizes for our animation or documentary films. Not a single recognition. But we immensely enjoy what we do.
THE RAG-TAG MISFITS
Our competition boasts of technical and creative expertise to die for. We have none.
But we are resolute; totally, totally committed to the projects we undertake. We are consumed by the desire to give our clients only the very best. They deserve it.
