An animation house, a home.

Fortune 500 companies and top-shelf brands are our MO, but our secret sauce is staying small. We work with the best and the biggest, but keeping a lean core team and a familial atmosphere has always kept us nimble and centered. 

From the client down to our staff - we put people first, and that’s why we’re thirty years strong. We put a little scrapbook together if you want to check out some of our history.

Hollywood Societies

Sue is President of ASIFA Hollywood, in charge of the non-profit organization founded over thirty five years ago with the mission to promote, preserve, and encourage the craft of animation.

Since 1972, they’ve hosted one of the most prestigious award ceremonies of the year, the Annies. (Think "The Oscars" for animation.)

Speaking of the Oscars, Sue is also a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. She is a member of the animation branch and the producers branch and oversees the shorts committee for the oscars every year.
