ABOUT US

Hired Goons exists to share the joy and sense of connection that comes through comedy. Comedy can change the world, inspire new ideas and bring about change. Mostly it just leads to laughter, which feels pretty good.

It's not just about laughs for us, though. We're driven by a love for story. The best thing about stories is that anything can be a story if it's told in the right way. So we make our own silly films, but we're also passionate about the stories our clients want to tell.

OUR TEAM

Our team is a highly trained group of monkeys. Trained through a rigorous, banana-reward based program we have equipped them to deal with any situation (except how to resist bananas).
TIM GOODWIN
FOUNDER/DIRECTOR
a human labrador

I’m the brains of the operation. And the brawn. Pearce doesn’t do much around here. If Hired Goons was a horse costume, I’d be the front half: co-ordinating the development and pre-production phase for all projects. Budgets and schedules are so much easier with a smile. “There’s no such thing as problems – only solutions.”

PEARCE HOSKINSON
FOUNDER/DIRECTOR
the one who smiles politely

Pearce handles the post-production and technical aspects of Hired Goons. Mostly this means spending a lot of time cross legged in front of the computer editing. He's going to have terrible posture one day.

His passions are drawing and filmmaking and he's happiest when he can combine them.
