Who We Are

Founded by Ben Marvazi
Since 2011, Ben Marvazi has grown a highly successful animation studio in Los Angeles to 7-figures - working with clients like Uber, Kaiser, NASA, Intuit, Pfizer, Verizon, Dunkin Donuts, Anheuser-Busch, Capital One, Comedy Central, FOX, Cisco, and many more!

Now, Ben focuses his time on helping animators get to six and seven figure incomes with proven systems, processes, and techniques that he’s learned through trial and error over the past 9+ years as a studio owner, and 16+ years as an entrepreneur and marketer.

Since Ben Marvazi’s background is in marketing and entrepreneurship rather than in animation, he’s able to offer the necessary training, tools, and resources most animators lack - in order to succeed in the growing business of animation.
