Super 78 is an award-winning animation studio with expertise in bringing to life some of the world’s most popular characters.

If it doesn’t have a story, we’ll write one. As media designers and producers the evolution into a creative studio is organic to who we are, and filling-in a blank page (or a blank screen!) is what we do best. Super 78 started designing animated characters and developing scripts for theme park attractions in 2001. Since then, the studio’s creative expertise transcended into immersive experiences, live events, video game cinematics, commercials, web content, ride films and an array of Super 78 content. In 2008 Super 78′s creative reach expanded to include the development of guest experiences, theme park attractions and visitor centers that immerse audiences into the 3rd, 4th and 5th dimensions and beyond.
From characters and matte paintings to theme park attractions and visitor center experiences, Super 78 has expanded from media design to include fresh and unique perspectives for physical spaces. Our creative eye for character looks and background environments are globally and universally inspired. Since 2009, the studio has earned accolades as designer of record for various media based attractions and experiences. Stay tuned as 2012 is proving to be a very busy design year. Nominated for an Emmy in 2010, creative director Brent Young earned his first recognition for the character design of Ben 10: Alien Swarm.
Award nominated films Flight of the Dragon and Flying Over America are two of our most recent live action shorts. Both attraction films take theme park guests on a tour throughout the two most visually inspiring countries in the world, China and the USA.
Super 78 began its foray into the world of Motion Graphics Design in 1998 with a Special Venue production for the NBC Experience at Rockefeller Plaza in New York. Soon after we found ourselves designing everything from broadcast logos and title sequences to award show packages. Our talented team continues to grow and so does our portfolio of innovative and exciting motion graphics segments.
Visual Effects & 3D Stereoscopic
Nominated for five Visual Effects Society Awards (VES), Super 78 is a creative studio with a VFX pipeline. Korn’s video Word Up marked Super 78′s first project as on-set VFX Supervisors while also producing 70 VFX shots where we took the band’s faces and composited them onto their favorite dogs, and all within a SUPER tight schedule. Since then the studio produced VFX shots for Nickelodeon, FOX, The Rolling Stones, and NBC and was lead VFX partner with Cartoon Network for “Ben 10: Race Against Time” designing characters and more than 120 shots.
