Hallmark makes the world a more caring place by helping people laugh, love, heal, say thanks, reach out and make meaningful connections with others. 

Through moments big and small, and through both happy and challenging times, Hallmark helps give voice to caring thoughts and emotions with tangible reminders of appreciation, celebration, belonging and love. 

Hallmark was founded more than a century ago by a teenage entrepreneur with a couple of shoe boxes of postcards under his arm and the American dream in his heart. Today’s Hallmark is a $4 billion business with greeting cards and other products sold in more than 40,000 retail stores across the U.S.- including top mass retailers and the network of Hallmark Gold Crown stores. 

Our brand also reaches people online at Hallmark.com and through our retail partners' web sites, and on television through and cable’s top-rated Hallmark Channels and Hallmark Hall of Fame movies Worldwide, Hallmark offers products in more than 30 languages available in 100 countries. 

Hallmark subsidiary Crayola inspires children's creativity through Crayola® brand crayons and markers as well as innovative art tools, crafting activities and creative toys that give kids the power to explore, discover, play and dream. 

But as big as we’ve become, and as iconic as our brand is today, we’re still privately held, still based in Kansas City, Mo., and still led by members of our founding family. 

More importantly, Hallmark continues to stay close to people's needs, understanding what is universal in the human heart and meeting those needs with products and experiences that bring people together. 

It’s an honor and privilege to do so. #HallmarkLife

The Mill has been creating world-class visual effects built on creative excellence and cutting-edge technologies for over twenty four years. We believe in creating work that touches people emotionally, that becomes popular culture and that people love, talk about and want to share. We believe in great ideas beautifully told. 

Co-founders of The Mill Robin Shenfield (CEO) and Pat Joseph (CCO) had some clear yet simple aspirations; The Mill should constantly strive to be the most innovative, creative and trusted brand in its field, and most importantly it should be a supportive and inspirational place to work. Today their founding values and aspirations hold true in the creative culture of our studio. 
Our passion for quality and the international scale of our operation makes us unique. Our artists help to shape some of the most exciting imagery on our screens. From the design of simple characters to the creation of sports stadiums filled with thousands of CG 'fans', our supervisors, producers and artists support all stages of production, from pre-visualisation and conceptual artwork, shoot supervision, 3D, 2D and colour grading through to delivery of the finished project. 

Today, we also originate, design and animate content through Mill+. We develop tangible real world experiences that resonate directly with consumers and we work across briefs of a scale that others say can’t be done.

Dark Catt Studios

https://darkcatt.com

Starting as a concept in 2012, we found ourselves in the trenches doing documentary work and freelance video journalism. From there our networking introduced us to some clients who presented new opportunities to work on more creative projects. These projects allowed us to begin using the latest innovations in technology such as:

 

· Virtual Reality

· 360 Video

· Photogrammetry

· Projection Mapping

 

Using these technologies, we now have several ventures underway, from full feature films and TV pilots, to short documentaries and simple multimedia projects. And, after being approached by the art department of a major production, we were asked to develop a virtual reality world that could allow them to pre-visualize the scenes they’ve created in their mind's eye. We’re now able to offer you this same technology:

 

· Virtual Reality Pre-visualization

 

As the in-house production company, we’ve partnered with and have located our studio at Chicago Studio City. And from our humble beginnings, with a lot of hard work and effort, Dark Catt Studios is now an independently owned and operated multimedia production company located in Chicago, Illinois.
