Content creation and production company Bodega has launched a new animation division, which will be led by Executive Producer Bill Hewes.

“I’m excited to lead their move into animation and introduce new talent to the roster,” Hewes said in a statement. “Our animation directors run the gamut from narrative storytelling, to design and illustration. From 2D to 3D, hand drawn, stop motion and mixed-media techniques, it’s a perfect fit.”

Hewes brings two decades of producing experience spanning animation, live action VFX and design at th1ng/th2ng, FilmTecknarna and Digital Kitchen.

The initial roster includes London-based animation studio HU_SH, led by Lydia Russell and Ru Warner, and New York-based design shop Mr. Wonderful.

 

Hewes previously collaborated with Russell and Warner at th1ng / th2ng and will offer HU_SH’s entire slate of talent to the U.S. market, including Academy Award-nominated French filmmaker Sylvain Chomet, world-renowned animation director Will Barras and award-winning filmmaker Kirk Hendry, as well as Alon Ziv, Nerdo, Chris Weigandt, Light + Mathematics, Dave Anderson, Kirk Hendry, Julien Bisaro and Woodwork.

Recent HU_SH work includes commercials and large format displays for Prudential Global Investment Management, and a Ben & Jerry’s spot out of ad agency Mekanism.

Mr. Wonderful just wrapped a series of co-branded assignments for Nickelodeon and motion design work for The Kardashians on E!.

Bodega Executive Producer Clint Goldman said he’s looking forward to working with Hewes and the animation directors who can expand the company’s artistic offerings.
We are making a long-term commitment to animation,” he said, “and these additions complement our growing family.”
