Animal Media Group is a production company that champions vital stories, artfully told. Created and led by an ambitious collective, Animal supports fiction and nonfiction filmmakers, storytellers, and content creators. We believe emotion, character, and honesty transcend barriers and inspire connection.

Our mission is to bring new stories to life. We are not afraid totake risks. We are curious about the world around us. We strive to create a collaborative space in which we can experiment and play with stimulating, original ideas.

Behind every great story is a team of passionate, dedicated people. We value our relationships and aim to reflect our love of the human spirit in all of our films. The Animal family invites you to share with us in our vision. The future of storytelling awaits us.
