Who Are We?

Crafty Apes is a full service visual effects company based in Culver City, CA. Launched in July 2011, the company was founded by three visual effects veterans with more than 20 years of combined experience: Jason Sanford, Chris LeDoux, and Tim LeDoux.

At Crafty Apes, we recognize that strong 2D compositing is the backbone for stunning visual effects. We pair the most talented artists in the field with the best technology available, and pay extra attention to the detail and integration 2D work requires. The result? Faster turnaround times, less overhead, better communication with our clients, and excellence in visual effects.

Crafty Apes was formed primarily to offer high-end compositing services to feature films and commercial clients.
