The team at Hands Down Studios is a curious, creative and multi-talented bunch. We live and breathe characters. We are inspired by the tiniest of details. We are skilled technicians and born storytellers, and we love what we do.

Hands Down Studios--formerly Sugarshack Animation--has offices in Miami and Sofia. Thanks to capable and reliable partners in scriptwriting, voiceover and sound production, we offer a full menu of animation production services.

What We Do

We have solid roots in comedy, but we can tell any kind of story.

We do all phases of traditional, puppet and hybrid 2D animation. Our digital pipeline is powerful and cost-effective, to facilitate episodic productions. We’ve produced up to 60 minutes a month of network-quality animation.

Our knowledgeable staff and flexible production model allow clients and partners to be as involved as they want to be. We pride ourselves on being accessible, whether you’re a writer-director, a streaming network, a commercial brand, or a documentary maker. We also create independent content.
