Feature Article


Hydra Studios specialise in high end cinematic content. We’re a new name but an experienced bunch, brought together by a love of what we do and a strong belief in how we should do it.

Hydra creates a broad range of CGI animation, from photoreal character performances to stylised action. We avoid formulaic approaches preferring to focus on each piece of work as something unique.

We welcome creative and technical challenges that heighten quality and inspire originality. We’re not big on hierarchy or restrictive infrastructure – Hydra is about collaboration and flexibility; pushing creative aspirations through the roof whilst keeping costs grounded.
