Founded in 1991 and driven by a simple philosophy – ‘to create GREAT WORK with GREAT PEOPLE’, Animal Logic is recognised as one of the world’s leading independent creative digital studios, producing award winning design, visual effects and animation for 30 years.
From creating mischievous bunnies in Peter Rabbit, building heroic minifigs in The LEGO Movies, battling fierce fighting owls in Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole to teaching prancing penguins how to dance in Happy Feet, Animal Logic inspires audiences around the world with great stories, breathtaking visuals, compelling characters, memorable performances, and ground breaking technology!
With teams in Sydney, Los Angeles and Vancouver, Animal Logic has never wavered from its core mission – to CREATE, to INNOVATE, to ENGAGE and to captivate audiences across the globe, producing great screen content with our incredible creative partners.
Our Studio habitats are located at Sydney’s Fox Studios and bustling Yaletown in Vancouver, where the most talented artists and technicians from around the world come to live, work and play.
Our development and production teams at Animal Logic Entertainment and Truant Pictures are also based at Fox Studios in Sydney and at the group’s creative headquarters in downtown LA at Rideback Ranch.
Hear more from our crew by watching Animal Stories, a video series where our talented crew chat about what it’s like to be an Animal. We’ll be releasing these videos regularly, with each one focusing on different aspects of studio life across Sydney, LA and Vancouver.
Let’s step back in time to 1991 when Animal Logic was based out of Crows Nest, Sydney – where a small team of 10 passionate and inspired artists and technicians came together to do GREAT work! Fast forward 30 years and we have an abundance of talented ANIMALS now based out Fox Studios in Moore Park. Although it’s a bigger team, they’re still busy innovating, pushing creative and technical boundaries and, most importantly, collaborating to create awesome stories using Animal Logic’s unique voice and visual style. The Sydney studio is currently in production on The Magician’s Elephant and The Shrinking of the Treehorns.
After the blockbuster success of The LEGO Movie, Animal Logic expanded its operations into Vancouver, Canada opening a second animation studio in September 2015. The studio is in an exclusive, three picture deal partnership with Animal Logic’s longtime collaborator, Warner Bros. Pictures.
The first film to come out of our Vancouver Studio, The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, was released February 2019, and we are wrapping up on DC League of Super-Pets, set for release July 2022! The team is also working on Toto and another unannounced project. Our Vancouver Studio is made up of a passionate and creative bunch, so if you are feeling inspired and want to join our team, look out for a call from the WILD… we are growing!
Located in downtown LA, Rideback Ranch is home to the LA based creative development team from Animal Logic Entertainment (ALE) and Truant Pictures. Fueled by a fridge full of artisanal coconut water and a steady supply of Tim-Tams, our team is focused on a diverse and eclectic slate of projects in the family animated and hybrid space and have recently expanded development to include a genre sub-label with an eye toward contained, elevated science fiction and supernatural thrillers.
ALE’s films include Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole and Peter Rabbit, Peter Rabbit 2 and The Shrinking of the Treehorns currently in production. If wrangling talking rabbits doesn’t keep them busy enough, they are also in joint venture with Imagine Entertainment and Warner Bros. to develop, produce, and co-finance a slate of feature length animation and hybrid animation projects for the whole family to enjoy. Stay tuned for more press on this new venture as ALE continues to do great work with wonderfully creative and amazingly talented people. Check-out ALE’s website for more info and a sneak peak at some of our other projects!
In 2018, Animal Logic announced a new production company, Truant Pictures! Truant will primarily develop and produce the films in collaboration with emerging and established Australian talent. Wherever possible the films will be produced in Australia for a worldwide market.
