Services offered at PH D include live-action production, post-production, color grading, editorial, VFX and delivery. To date, the company has completed a number of PSAs for international animal advocacy group WildAid, including this one featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger and James Cameron.

“In a sense, our new company is a reconfigured version of Rhythm & Hues, but now we are much smarter, much more nimble, and much more results driven,” said Hughes in a prepared statement. “We have very little overhead to deal with.”

The company says it employs digital artists in L.A., India, Malaysia and South Africa.
