Herne Hill Media is a creative production studio, complete with in-house Art, Creature, Editorial, and Visual Effects Departments.

We collaborate with A-list directors, production teams, and filmmakers to develop projects from conception to completion.

We’re dedicated to offering a modern and safe working environment, including work-from-home, in-studio, or hybrid options. Embedded in this effort is support for one another in the moments that matter, both inside and outside the workplace.

Environment

Located in the heart of the Liberty Village neighborhood in Toronto, Ontario is Herne Hill’s studio. Our state of the art screening room is uniquely designed for remote sessions, while the natural light of the kitchen allows our custom fitted green screen to pop whenever we need. We’re spoiled for choice when it comes to lunch or late-night food offerings, and the relaxed, family friendly atmosphere of the neighbourhood permeates the workspace to challenge the grinding mentality and remind us that our work, while sometimes challenging, is ultimately exciting and rewarding.
