Between our post-production facility in Soho and our 5,000-square-foot shooting stage in Brooklyn, Hornet offers a robust and seamless array of mixed media, live-action, animation, and post-production under one roof.

We believe that fostering good communication and creating a fluid experience for our clients is integral to creating outstanding work. We know it’s not enough to be great listeners. We have to interpret to be effective problem solvers and in turn, to do the best work for our clients.

We love our clients and consider our recurring and ongoing clients a badge of honor—not to mention, a part of our extended family.

STAGE

Our 5,000-square-foot shooting stage in Ridgewood, New York is a fully-equipped creative playground where our directors and producers have all the resources they need to fully express themselves. 

 

As a commitment to the process, we’ve invested in our own stages for the last 10 years. This gives us a leg up in terms of speed, efficiency, and a creative freedom that few studios can enjoy.

Having our own art department on-hand, our directors, producers, animators, fabricators, and puppeteers can dive fully into their craft, build new worlds, and bring their vision to life. This allows us to truly push the limits of what mixed media production can be.
