What is Lost Hope

A Mix of X-Files Meets Battlestar Galacitca, this dramedy focuses on the struggling last remnants of Humanity onboard the arc ship USS Hopefull. Following the team led by Clara Hope who must protect them against all odds.

Their humor meerly a deflection of the horrors and struggles they suffer, this drama comedy leans heavy into the human condition and what it means to be the last of our kind.

💕 Some Ppl who like what we do.

It is rare you find a talented creative who can pour themselves into something, and preserve enough balance to be ready to adapt and adjust. In his role at Strawhouse Jeff was the perfect blend of genius, speed, and humble to help us hone in quickly on creatives that were transformational for our clients.

Mark How

Ceo & Founder

Jeff is a skilled and talented professional with an amazing ability to pursue his passions and professional work with the same vigour and drive. He works well with others and knows how to take a team and make them a family with his natural charm and charisma! I would work with jeff again and again!

Myke Allen

Graphically Ill

I originally met Jeff when he was a student of mine at Camosun College. He then took the full time course I teach at the Victoria School of Business and Technology. Jeff, in both situations, was exemplary. His ability to absorb the information as well as understand the technology and its potential was only surpassed by his willingness to help those students around him. It was because of that I encouraged Jeff to take on the role of an instructor.

Unicorn Dick, their never asked for, but making it anyways, absurdist comedy about a not so bright Unicorn Detective, and his Candy Corn friend diving deep into the perils of their cities streets, into the seedy underbelly, to expose a truth that will change everything!

"With support from our Pateron supporters, fans, and nft collectible supporters, we want to create a main show, telling the story of Flynn and the gang, but include our fans in an expanded universe of animated shorts telling stories about the downtrodden from around our not so fair city. These shorts in fact star the nft collectible characters we have built!"

Building Our Own Cartoons & Awesome Community!

Premiered Mar 1, 2022


Animation has been seen for the most part as something you just watch. Video games use animation, but they are not the same as our favorite cartoons. So how do we find a way to step into a middle ground between games and shows? Our answer to this was community.

Starting with the community we build up an expanded universe, but our expanded universe exists in an animated world, one we want to open to our community and our team to play in, tell stories together in, and grow together as an ever expanding world of animated shorts.

We Are growing a universe of shows with unprecedented access to our behind the scenes development through Patreon, NFT Collectible Characters (Safely and Securely through Flair.Finance) Special Events, and our Discord community with Creative sessions, developer diaries, and so much more.

We have been working hard for years as a small team, working to make our passion a realized world of shows built with our fans, and delivered with heart. Join the Revolution!
