th1ng has been here since 2003. We have lots of different parts and make lots of different things. Animation with th1ng and Film Club, live action with th2ng, Broadcast Design with Flux and digital things with Plaything. We started in Soho, London and now we are in New York, Stockholm and Dubai. We have over 40 Directors and Designers and work together to create great work. We like all the tools that can help us do this : cameras and microphones, brushes and pencils, computers and software, plasticine and puppets. We love all our Directors that use these tools and all our Producers who help them. We really appreciate the industry accolades that our Directors have won, especially the 3 Academy Award Nominations and the 3 BAFTAS.
