MightyPants Media is the creative development group born from the loins of animation stalwart Flinch Studio. Formed in 2013, MightyPants marks the recognition of the new role of the boutique studio in a rapidly evolving entertainment market. We still work in the trenches, developing concept art and styles, building storyboards and animatics, producing animation and effects and pulling it all together in post production with a powerful soundtrack. However, our expertise with creative strategy, character development and storytelling have combined with our production acumen to form a development powerhouse.
Flinch Studio was founded in the midst of growing excitement over the possibilities of entertainment on the web. In those early years, we helped to launch some of the biggest properties to hit the internet, including Tim Burton’s Stainboy, The Critic for Gracie Films and Adam Sandler’s The Peeper. Over the following decade, in the course of developing entertainment-based properties for marketing, education and brand support, Flinch Studio’s role evolved organically from service provider to a full-service creative partner, with Director Tony Grillo overseeing script & story, visual development and creative strategy.
As connectivity continually redefines what makes a viable entertainment medium, so must viable media companies plant their flags and build foundations for future creative ventures. Yet, every year brings more evidence that, while the sky is the limit in terms of medium, the fundamentals of storytelling remain the same.
Tony has overseen the development & creation of hundreds of hours of web content, exploring compelling characters and stories. Our Clients have reached out from all corners of the industry to have their stories told in a engaging way, sharing ideas clearly, concisely, and often with humor.
For those of us who have put our faith in broader mediums and dedicated our careers to riding the ever changing trends that drive its fruition, this is a very exciting time indeed.
