What We're About

At Datalus Pictures we allow our imagination to drive our creativity forward, ensuring that it has no restrictions, no boundaries, or limits placed upon it. Artistic exploration is our mantra, because we know that when content creators are free to explore, engaging content can be created. We aren’t a large Hollywood studio, and we’re okay with that, we’re a studio of artists freely exploring new narratives and ideas to entertain the world.

We do this through film, tv, web, comics, and video games.

TransMedia Production Company

Datalus Pictures is a transmedia production company. Meaning we’re storytellers who use various platforms to engage our audience. In fact, when we create content we look at every possible platform opportunity for that content today, and for that content years from now. We are world builders, and we want to bring those worlds to you.

The Founders
