Human writers, producers, directors, storyboard artists, animators, compositors and editors are all right here, in house. Our state‐of‐the‐art sound studio is where many of our TV shows, films, commercial work, and branded and digital content are recorded. We even have very fancy edit bays where our very fancy editors put the finishing touches on your very fancy cartoons.

    Titmouse founders Chris and Shannon Prynoski opened a T‐shirt company in the year 2000 and named it Titmouse after Chris’ favorite Northeastern‐American bird species, but soon restructured the business to focus more on high‐quality film and television animation production. The Prynoskis made this courageous business decision for no reason other than the fact that they could do it (and because nobody was buying their T‐shirts, but television and film studios kept giving them money to make cartoons).
