Pig Apple was born in Georgia but grew up in New York City. The three of us first met as students at The University of Georgia, cutting our teeth producing sketch comedy for the dorm's cable access channel. Several years after graduation, we found ourselves together again in Brooklyn. We now have over fifty years of combined experience in live-action and animation production. Whether you need a soup-to-nuts web series production, VFX to polish up your hit TV show, or an animated short to promote your brand, Pig Apple is here. We specialize in exceeding expectations no matter the budget. Let’s talk about making your awesome thing more awesome.
