Quite simply, we endeavor to make the best shortform content in the world.
We do what we do for select companies, institutions, individuals, and our harshest critics: ourselves.
We believe in emotional humanist filmmaking. We believe that films should be created under one roof. We believe the ordinary often holds the extraordinary. We believe Old Hollywood craftsmanship and cutting edge wizardry must coexist. Welcome to the golden age of digital storytelling, where everything old is new again.
We make films. We are humans who want to connect to other humans through storytelling. We prioritize the stories of ordinary folks over influencers. We’ve steeped ourselves in the Great Filmmaking Principles of the 1930s, 40s, and 50s, while obsessing over the newest and shiniest tools the 21st century has to offer. Any given film’s team accomplishes that, all together, under one roof. This is what distinguishes our work.
We get up in the morning for impossible creative challenges. Our collaborative team of artists, craftspeople and technologists is a collection of some of the finest young storytelling talent in the world. Learn more about all of us to see how we make our mark on every film we make. Want to join the team? Write us a note. We are always looking for obsessive, imaginative, free thinkers.
Though we are lucky that our work takes us to every corner of the planet, our studio is headquartered in Walt Disney’s original office building in Los Feliz, California with a Canadian outpost in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
