Hoods is slang for:
~ someone embodying urban culture
At Hoods Inc., we like to stay under the radar (we can do our most groundbreaking work that way), so we let our projects speak for themselves. And while remaining anonymous, we have produced OVER ONE THOUSAND half and one hour comedy and drama televised episodes, commercials, current affairs programmes, feature films, documentaries, music videos, branded content, webisodes, corporate videos, interstitials, live events and social media integrated content.
We also get bored easily. Which is why we risk everything, every time, to bring the most innovative entertainment to your screens. And with great risk comes great reward. We were the:
FIRST to bring English sitcoms into your home
FIRST to make arts programming accessible to the masses
FIRST to have a series pulled off the air for ‘crossing the line’
FIRST to use the Red Camera and create a workflow
FIRST to incorporate AR/VR tech into televised series (animated & photo-realistic)
FIRST to create Singapore’s longest running kids/family reality series
FIRST to bring arts comedy to the heartlands
(of course these are just the success stories; let’s not go into the risks that crashed and burned)
Because why not?
Our single-minded focus on quality has led to a diversity in products and services, from sitcoms to dramas, webisodes to commercials, feature films to music videos, we provide you with the boldest and the best. Experimenting with 360 technology, virtual studios and 8K resolution productions, we are able to adapt to ever-changing client and consumer needs.
In a nutshell, we do anything and everything. So long as it interests us and makes a difference in people’s lives. Especially ours.
We are the team behind TV, feature film and online series like Pulau Hantu, Hard Truths, City Sharks, Front, K By Kumar, ST4R SQUAD, Angels, Wrinkles, Zero Hero, Sonic Warrior, IDEX, Yolo Pronto, Presidential Art, Cosmo & George, Stories of Love Anthology, Double Trouble, SSSOFA, Random Acts, Living Together, Fableicious, Knockout… we would love to keep humblebragging, but we’ve got a word count limit. Then again, breaking the rules is our motto. So here’s more. We were also part of the creative team behind hits like Under One Roof, Phua Chu Kang, Kids Talk Back and Capital e. Don’t know these shows? Ask your parents.
With hard work, blood, sweat and tears. And the occasional bit of good fortune.
