What Drives UsOur mission

As production complexity increased and deadlines tightened, the need for efficient teamwork became more crucial. The growing amount of data to manage made it harder to deliver high-quality movies, often keeping people late at night. That's why we decided to put an end to this. We wake up every morning with one goal: to help you deliver high-end visuals while keeping the process enjoyable.

To achieve this, we reimagined communication both inside and outside the studio. Internally, we transformed the production tracker into a collaborative platform where all stakeholders can share information in real time and become more autonomous. Externally, we enabled talents from different studios to connect and grow their skills together.

Through our solutions, artists can collaborate effortlessly with teams and can focus on their craft, developing their skills and reaching new heights. Meanwhile, studios can scale seamlessly, unleashing their potential and fulfilling their ambitions.

Together we are all winners.

Our values

  • Simplicity

    The lighter our tools, the more agile we become. It clears our minds and speeds everything up.

  • Collaboration

    When ideas and work are shared, everyone wins. We learn faster and achieve more.

  • Craftsmanship

    Well-made things last longer. When they are a joy to work on, it leads to better software.

How we work

  • Open Company

    We share most of what we build and learn. We have also made our KPIs public.

  • Remote

    We work from where we want when we want. Only productivity matters.

  • Deliberate Practicing

    We always need to learn. That's why we dedicate one day a week to self-training.
