With more than 40 years of industry experience, HouseSpecial recently celebrated a wildly successful first year following our spin-off from feature film studio LAIKA. Our mastery is creating and breathing life in to iconic spokescharacters that endure and enhance brands such as M&Ms, Planters and Honey Nut Cheerios. Working across all mediums, we provide comprehensive creative services from initial design through animation and final post within our studio in Portland, OR. Whether you're just beginning to concept or have an existing character to refresh, we're here to consult and collaborate on all your character needs.
From custom animation sequences to illustrative end credits, HouseSpecial has partnered with studios and production companies such as Warner Brothers, Millennium Films, First Look International, New Line Cinema and LAIKA Entertainment. With capabilities in stop motion, 2d and CG, we provide a range of creative solutions to fit your budget parameters.
At the creative crossroads between commercial work and feature content, at any given time we have numerous original short film projects in development and production. Our most recent short, A Tale of Momentum & Inertia, has enjoyed international critical acclaim, garnering a dozen awards including the Best Animation Award at FilmOneFest and Short Film Silver at The Australian Effects and Animation Festival. The short also is living second life as an animated commercial campaign for Indeed. With two new shorts premiering in the first quarter of 2016, our next venture is to realize our original creative in to episodic content.
