Hornet is dedicated to the development and production of longer form animation. Creating content for film, television, and web, we bring to life character-driven stories born from storytellers with unique and original points of view.

Many Hornet directors have longer stories to tell and we believe in helping them tell them. From the initial inception of an idea, we develop and nurture their concept, working collaboratively on writing and design, to ready the project for the next level. Once development is complete we tap our deep industry relationships to bring the project to market. We have successfully set up several properties in television and film with such companies as Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Disney, 20th Century Fox, and Paramount Pictures.

Hornet also recognizes the importance of short film work in the evolution of our directors. We encourage and invest in our directors' visions resulting in films that have collected awards and accolades from the likes of Sundance, SXSW and Vimeo. Our repututation in the industry has allowed us to form alliances with agencies and brands on the forefront of non-traditional content and continue to explore and navigate this everchanging advertising landscape.

Our work is driven by a thoughtfully curated roster of award winning directors from around the globe who have cultivated their own unique voices but share a passion for good, classic storytelling.
We believe the way to achieve true innovation and work that leaves its mark starts with understanding the very intention of a piece. Through the lens of our directors, we create rich worlds built from the nuance and small details that make your story your very own. Because we are not limited to any one way of bringing your ideas to life, we can focus on producing work that redefines what we thought we knew about storytelling.

Together with our crew we are driven day after day by this mission and invite you and your story to come join us.
