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


Tim leads the pre-production of projects including scheduling, budgets and crewing for corporate productions. He also handles all client management, operations and accounting.

Aside from paperwork, Tim also writes comedy scripts and tackles the social media and graphic design work for Hired Goons. He is also the most handsome, charming, funny and most humble website copywriter in the world.

PEARCE HOSKINSON
FOUNDER/DIRECTOR
the one who smiles politely


Pearce co-ordinates the post-production phase of projects and all technical aspects of the company. His skills in editing, motion graphics and website creation add the spit-and-polish to creative ideas.

Relentless in scriptwriting and a well of new ideas, most of Hired Goons creative concepts start as a spark inside Pearce’s imagination. He also talks less than Tim and Sam - more of a quality-over-quantity kind of speaker.

SAM MONAGHAN
BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
MANAGER

a nice guy

Sam brings to the team a history of business startups and a keen eye for storytelling. Having produced and acted in his own comedy projects, he has a solid understanding of film productions.

His focus is currently on driving new sales, and writing and directing new comedy shorts.

Sadly, Sam is the least attractive of the trio.
