WHY WE ARE CALLED

THE FAMILY

Because we are more than a group of people who work in the same space. We’re friends, brothers, and sisters, and we view the people and companies we are connected to in this industry as Family too. We are home to production companies, animation studios, music houses, record labels, orphans, editorial and post facilities, digital content creators and producers, in-laws, technologists, strategists, designers, visual effects wizards, directors, runaways, editors, writers, and thinkers.
