Bold, unapologetic storytelling

Neon Zoo is a full-service independent animation studio run by award-winning director Elyse Kelly. Our passion lies in giving a platform and voice to the untold, unexpected, and sometimes taboo stories.
 
We champion story first and foremost. Taking the time to fully understand your content opens the doors for us to express it in the most beautiful and effective way possible.
 
Animation is a medium, not a genre. Our studio embraces that mindset by creating a place where both conventional and unconventional ideas can thrive and grow into incredible things for our clients. At the end of the day, anything is possible, and we’ll work with you to determine the best fit for your story.
