Psychic Bunny

Psychic Bunny We are Makers, Doers, and Seers. We make cool stuff for you. Psychic Bunny was founded in 2005 to bring diverse skills and creative disciplines together under one roof.

We believe variety of experience and talent leads to innovative problem-solving and more engaging content. That’s why our DTLA studio has engineers, animators, editors, motionographers, producers, and one giant dog all tackling everything from commercials and feature films to interactive experiences. These tight knit teams are much like our namesake: nimble, crafty, and capable of foretelling the exact circumstances of your untimely demise.

It's with heavy heart that I announce that at the end of this year, after 15 years of media making, Psychic Bunny is closing its doors. It's been an incredible ride, and one that has taken us all quite far. The Bunny will live on in our hearts, of course, and will still be able to read our minds, but will no longer be available to make the most incredible media the world has ever seen. We're all on to bigger and better things, and we're excited - damn excited - for what's next.

Happy Holidays everyone!

Back in April 2005, some dudes signed a lease on office space downtown so that we could prove to our first clients that we were a "real company." We borrowed enough money to buy some desks from Ikea, and got the cheapest chairs that Staples would provide. Who knew Psychic Bunny Red would take so many coats of paint??? Jesse and Asa figured out a way to draw a huge Bunny logo on the wall, and the paint was still drying when our client from Canada walked in. Our project would pay for the office for about 3 months, and then we'd run out of money again.

15 years later, Psychic Bunny is still paying my rent. Jesse's working for USC now, Doug's heading up his own projects, and Asa went off to LEGO, but I'm still here! It's funny that before we got the office, we ran the LLC out of my living room, and now with the pandemic...I'm back running the company out of my house!

I can't express how much I learned from these guys. In the beginning we used to call each over other to read and rewrite client emails before we sent them. We learned finances together, branding, client management, employee management, and all while practicing our cinema arts. It's just amazing getting a group of creatives and deciding your own rules together. They turned me into the entrepreneur and artist I am today, and we have a highly developed set of in-jokes that I don't even know the genesis of any more. Thank you to those dudes, Asa Shumskas Tait, Jesse Vigil, and Doug Spice, and all the amazing clients, contractors, employees, and friends we've pestered for advice along the way. It's been the best ride.

Lost Moon Radio

Psychic Bunny has had a long history of collaboration and friendship with an LA comedy troupe called Lost Moon Radio. Actors from Lost Moon Radio have been in our films, our commercials, and have even participated in our 24-hour film festivals of yore. We go see their shows on a regular basis.

Please consider contributing to their Kickstarter, for they are awesome. We'll post some of our favorite videos below.

We're an award-winning Los Angeles comedy group funding a whole slate of creative projects over the next 18 months.

We're working on Rick's 2nd feature, and put this little video about how representation is important, and how the cast and crew of All Sorts came from all different backgrounds to tell one story.

We're 3 days away from our Kickstarter deadline. Will you help us close the gap?

"Whoa, self," you say to yourself, "this is not a Kansas I recognize!"

After more than 11 years, Psychic Bunny seems suddenly... different. Not like you remember. The logo is simpler. Bolder. More inquisitive. The website is... fresher. Moving-er. Mobile-ier. New content is all awash in your fresh face!

Welcome to 2017.
