Could you build a studio with a team from around the world?

Frustrated with an industry that was constantly relocating top talent, co-founders David Andrade and Mark Olson came up with an idea: what if we took the best talent from all over the world and put them under one virtual roof?

Fast forward to 2013 and David and Mark started Theory Studios: the world’s first virtual production company. Since then we’ve produced animated shorts for Frederator, and worked on hit shows like Silicon Valley, The Good Wife, Sesame Street, and The Man in the High Castle.
