Hocus Pocus Studio is independent animation studio in London making films for happy clients all over the world. What does being independent mean? For us it is about having the freedom to work on the projects we love. Sometimes that’s through another agency, other times a brand or a business. Main thing here is we only take on jobs that excite us.
‘Hocus Pocus’ is the title of another Kurt Vonnegut novel, a writer we’ve loved from the ‘Breakfast of Champions’ days (we’re the team that founded and operated bofc for many years).
There’s a core creative team – James, Justin, T, Rob, Henrique – making sure everything we produce has the consistent Hocus Pocus sparkle. Miles our PM keeps us on time and budget. Of course we’ll work with specialist directors and illustrators as needed too; it’s quite a family (with mandatory cute dog).
We’re based in Archer Street in Soho, which we think is about perfect. Soho’s so full of life, so despite the burgeoning waistlines from the amazing food on our doorstep, we can’t imagine working anywhere else.
