Making Magic with 3D Animation in Los Angeles


Los Angeles is best known for being home to Hollywood, where some of the greatest entertainment hits in the world were born. Besides the glitz and glamor of movie stars and celebrities, the city’s draw for talent has also attracted many major game developers to settle here, including EA and Tencent. The second-largest city in the United States, Los Angeles is also known for its cultural diversity and unique ethnic enclaves that make up the social fabric of the city.



Before joining the Virtuos family in 2020, CounterPunch spent the last decade servicing the CG industry, developing a deep expertise in animation production. Our studio has worked on some of the biggest AAA titles in the industry, including Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Uncharted Lost Legacy, Mortal Kombat 11, Last of Us 2, and Halo Infinite.

Formed by a team of animation advocates and industry veterans, our studio offers a variety of content production services, from facial and body modelling, rigging, look development, to keyframe and motion-capture animation. As a member studio of Virtuos, CounterPunch can provide a full range of services in 3D art and game development services to our clients, on top of our animation expertise.

With our studio’s strong emphasis on education and learning, Virtuos North America and CounterPunch are honored to be named as a winner of the inaugural US Best Places To Work Awards 2021, with a special award in the education category.


At CounterPunch, our team champions cohesiveness, cooperation, and communication among studio members above all. With the COVID-19 outbreak preventing us from being in the office in person since 2020, our team maintains constant virtual communication and connection, and we continue to engage with the local community safely through charitable contributions.

Our studio members are provided with a career development plan and a variety of rewards as we continue to grow. Made up of experienced professionals that highly value constant learning and improvement, we advocate knowledge sharing among the team and support our members’ journey in personal development.

Located along Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Los Angeles, our studio is surrounded by cafés, restaurants and retail shops, and a stone’s throw away from Venice Beach, one of the most popular spots to unwind and relax in town.
