Who We Are


Nick Smith

President, Co-founder, Designer, Animator, Video Editor

Nick's life-long passion for movies, and particularly animation, drove him to find a way to pursue a creative career. He is our self-taught animator and designer, and he oversees every artistic aspect of our projects and our brand.

Nick is a husband and father of two. Nick has a lot of interests. Passions might be a better word. Okay, fine. They're obsessions. Anyone who knows him well has heard about them. Apple. Chipotle. Field Notes. Lego. Mini Cooper. And, of course, Pixar.

Vice-President, Co-founder, Video Producer, Voice-over Talent

Laura Beth is our early riser and energizer bunny who never stops. She coordinates and manages the entire video production process, from developing ideas and writing scripts to providing voice-over and editing. Laura Beth began her career as a television reporter telling people's stories, a passion she continues today through video and her voice over skills..

Laura Beth is married with three kids. When she isn't joyfully cleaning up their many messes, she's digging into the dark chocolate and spending every spare minute outdoors.
