Venice, CA/NYC-based HēLō was started in 2013 with one simple vision: to create experiences, not interruptions.
In a digital age, there is no longer differentiation between consumers and audiences; they are one and the same. This is why we didn’t set out to be merely another production company. We are experience providers, problem solvers, storytellers and nimble content creators. Our principals have done everything from run a Digital Agency to heading up a Talent Management Firm. That, combined with our meticulously selected group of HēLō talent, provide fertile ground to meet the challenges of today’s increasingly integrated entertainment and advertising markets.
Everyone on our roster is an original voice and innovator in new formats and distribution channels. Some are downright pioneers.
