About

Hackett Films decided it was time to have a name that suits its multi-disciplinary approach, hence Studio Hackett. We still love motion graphics, animation and live-action but we also love design, digital education and illustration and our new name encompasses all that we do.

If you have a project, let’s work together!

Our Team

What our clients say

  • "In 2010 I came up with an idea for a humorous kids’ science book, How to Make a Planet. I asked a colleague in TV: “If I wanted Pixar in Australia, where would I go?”, and Hackett Films was suggested. From the very first meeting I knew I’d come to the right place."

    Klepac Publishing – Ariana Klepac

  • "The combination of talents they bring to the table - highly original thinking, a deep sense of commitment to making ideas work within sometimes limited resources, and an unblemished record of delivering on time and at the highest possible standard - makes them, in my view, the gold standard of creative companies in Australian television."

    Zapruder’s Other Films – Andrew Denton

  • "Hackett Films are fantastic at turning raw concepts in to reality. They worked really closely with us at BLOKE to turn a character idea we had for the Maritime Museum in to a fully realised TVC and they added so much to the process along the way. Nothing is ever too much for James, Sarah and the team and they always go the extra mile."

    Bloke — Mike O’Rourke

  • "We have been particularly delighted with the collaborative and iterative approach the team at Hackett have taken to working with us, and we have loved the new ideas they have introduced that have challenged us to think about how we expand our brand."

    Orygen – Kerryn Pennell

Facilities

Studio Hackett is based at The Commons in Chippendale, only a 5 minute stroll from Central Station. In this beautifully refurbished brick warehouse we have access to a photography studio, a maker space, a podcast studio, and an outdoor basketball court, not to mention that the entire building is powered by 100% renewable energy. Come around for a meeting, we’ll make you a great cup of tea.
