Straightface studios

Straightface Studios was established in 2000 as a "one-man band" working out of a spare bedroom. Since then, Straightface has grown to be recognized as one of Seattle’s most talented production houses.

Specializing in live action production, animation, and visual effects, Straightface is passionate about producing great work, delivering on time and on budget, and exceeding client expectations.
