INFO & BIOS


The advertising industry has dramatically changed. Today, brands need more content than ever. To provide a more modern solution, we created Fellow as a one-stop creative studio, merging the worlds of CG, live-action, and animation. 


With our partners coming from Brazil and France - and with a diverse, multidisciplinary team - we've built FELLOW on the idea that when people from different worlds come together, amazing things happen.
