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

  • "We worked with Hackett Films in 2011 for the first time on the 13th annual IF Awards broadcast and were delighted with the results for the motion graphics on screen at the event and for the broadcast. We would definitely work with Hackett Films again, they are a great team, brimming with good ideas."

    If Awards – Annie Parnell

  • "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

  • "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."

Facilities

Studio Hackett sits in the City of Sydney artistic hub, Chippendale. There is off-street parking for you beneath the studio. There are twelve desks, an edit suite and large meeting area where we can review and collaborate on your job. The layout is adaptable allowing us to do castings and small-scale shoots. Our friends Tactile Music have some space in our studio which enables fast, high-production value audio under the one roof. Come around for a meeting, we’ll make you a great cup of tea.
