Hyperion Pictures

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Hyperion Pictures (also known as Hyperion Films, Hyperion Studios or Hyperion Animation) is an American film production and animation company founded by Thomas L. Wilhite and Willard Carroll. Wilhite was previously the vice president of film and television at The Walt Disney Company, and the company name is likely derived from its former Los Angeles location of Hyperion Avenue. The company has produced live-action films and series but is better-known for its animated productions, like The Brave Little Toaster and The Proud Family, produced by the joint-venture Jambalaya Studio. The company is still active, but hasn't produced any new content since 2007.
