About Us

Helping indies succeed

Our mission is to share knowledge.

Whether it is sharing best practices or giving hands-on assistance, we want to make sure you can learn from our mistakes, and from those who wrestled with similar issues before any of us.

Our Nordic heritage makes us collaborative, straight-talking and easygoing … just so you know what you’re getting into with us.

CEO Nick Dorra

Nick has over 20 years of experience in production roles, having worked in animation, events and interactive drama.

Previously as Head of Animation for Rovio (the Angry Birds makers), he grew the animation team from ten to 100+ artists and played a key part in taking the Angry Birds characters from game to screen. Later Nick headed content strategy for Rovio’s AVOD service ToonsTV.

After a stint at the New York based incubator Thirty Labs (created by the visionary Fred Seibert), Nick returned to animation and started Haruworks, where he practices what he preaches to clients.
