Company Snapshot

Could the next Pixar come from Colombia? It’s possible if you enter the imagination of Diego and Pedro, the entrepreneurs behind Oruga, a daring digital animation studio from Colombia. Leaders of the country’s growing animation community, Oruga is known for its creative, high-quality, and internationally-tested designs. The company typically completes projects for ad campaigns and architectural visualizations, but going forward, it is positioning itself as a service provider and content developer for TV and film. The young, quirky, and idealistic entrepreneurs are working with other studios in Colombia to build a country-wide pool of talent that is capable of taking on major international projects and put Colombia on the map for digital animation.
