─ Story

Bringing makers together for the Experience Economy

We were makers way before this term became fashionable. Sid Lee Studio is the love-child of a union of four Sid Lee units that have been successful for years: Jimmy Lee, our progressive cross-platform production studio; Sid Lee Tech, Sid Lee Labs, and Sid Lee Entertainment. Merging these thriving units was a bold move but it proved to be a great decision to foster the total integration of all forms of production.

The result is a single, cohesive collaborative team: our production, technical R&D, and live events departments all thrive together in a single unit powered by an ability to master digital and physical environments to create truly transformative experiences. 

Consumers encounter these experiences through traditional media, interactive platforms, live events and installations, apps, omni-channel solutions and more. In keeping with our silo-free philosophy, we foster an environment in which professionals and artisans from all disciplines feed and inspire one another with distinctive but complimentary skill sets.

- Thinking

An agency that's truly maker-driven

Most agencies delegate production to outside vendors and simply act as middlemen. This approach makes production more complicated and expensive as it should be.

Our guiding principles are as follows:

  • Do It Yourself: agencies must produce, not just delegate production (but we must collaborate with best in class outside talent).
  • Be agile: modern production should be simpler, faster and cost efficient.
  • Integrate disciplines: all forms of production must now live together.
  • Elevate the idea: production is more than delivery, craft must elevate our creative work.
  • Start at the start: production is longer sequential, we need producers at the very inception of projects.
