Nerd Corps Entertainment was a Canadian animation studio located in Vancouver, British Columbia. Founded by former Mainframe Entertainment producers Asaph Fipke and Chuck Johnson in 2002, it specialized in CGI animation, computer animation, and Flash animation.

Aside just animation, Nerd Corps developed and produced in-house television works and produced promotional materials and creative services for merchandising and licensing partners.[1]

It was acquired by DHX Media on December 24, 2014,[2][3] who then merged it with another acquired animation studio, Studio B Productions, to form its in-house flagship division, DHX Studios in 2016.

The studio notably produces the Monster High animated films for Mattel and animated series including Slugterra, Blaze and the Monster Machines, Kate & Mim-Mim, Storm Hawks, League of Super Evil, Hot Wheels Battle Force 5, and Max Steel.

History

On December 24, 2014, Canadian company DHX Media acquired Nerd Corps.[2][3]

In 2016, the former Nerd Corps team was relocated to a new facility in Vancouver, which also houses the former Studio B Productions, an animation studio which DHX Media acquired in 2007.[4]
