Robots, miniatures, software, visual effects, animation, anything that we can get our hands deep into and turn inside out.  Hydralab's talent is taking on the hard stuff, diving in, and delivering great results.  We're ambitious, passionate, and multi-faceted.

What we do

From creating innovative software and technology, to executing high-end visual effects, to developing and directing commercials and short films, hydralab occupies many worlds - and its core mission, to remain broad, agile and outstanding, puts it in a unique position to understand visual communication and information.

We're not yet sure if we're a creative agency or a production studio or a software company, but we think we're somewhere in between.  We'll design and build the tech to advance your latest brand campaign, take on a few hundred effects shots, brainstorm your new research methods with you, or partner with you on a social benefit project.

We also direct films and commercials.


hydralab was founded by Sunit Parekh in 2006 as a way to manage his diverse interests -  film/post-production, software, education, robots.

Since 2010, hydralab has grown as a studio, taking on larger projects, developing infrastructure, and broadening its experience base.  

The Team

hydralab is composed of a core staff of experienced and talented artists and managers.  We also work with a large, trusted network of freelancers, project hires, and long time collaborators. We believe in working with the best people, and rely heavily on our team to realize our projects.  Our in-house production infrastructure allows us to work with both remote and local artists, and to scale up with the size of the project.  Please take a look at the team here.
