WHO WE ARE

At Doberman Pictures, we’re an
“Artist’s Best Friend.”

We keep our teams small but mighty, creating an environment where everyone has a voice.

Humble beginnings

  • doberman 3d glasses

Founded in 2018 by friends Jim, Dallas, Craig, and Rob, Doberman has always been about doing things differently. Doberman is a studio where elite and passionate artists feel at home and are among like-minded artists.

A clear vision

  • Rhyme Time Town

At Doberman, our art always takes centre stage. A genuine love for the craft of animation and storytelling guides our every move.

The studio of choice

Our artists-first ethos has led to thoughtful growth and resounding success. But more importantly, it’s created a workplace culture that is unique in Vancouver and even the industry as a whole. The engagement and success of our people in and out of the studio are critical to the success of Doberman. We keep things simple, friendly, and fun.

Our fearless leaders

These friendly faces lead from within the group, not from above. They may have founded Doberman, but they make sure everyone’s voice is heard and actively influences the studio.
