Practice is founded of playfulness and optimism, and the radical notion that creativity can change the world. Among other things, we’ve made puppet shows for tech apps, singalongs for environmental awareness campaigns and a sitcom parody for a plumbing company.

The studio’s capabilities include live action, stop motion, 2D and 3D animation, and set design.


The studio is helmed by directors Adrian Bishop and Mike Slane, and supported by a team of designers, fabricators, producers and animation wizards.

Adrian Bishop

Principal & Creative Director

I was born to a couple of flower children – raised with goats and chickens in the woods in Oregon – learned meditation and Kyudo with the offspring of zen masters – and came to filmmaking through the door of wonder. My wife and I live in Denver. We have 3 children who blow our minds constantly. When I’m not making commercials I’m usually working on sci-fi film, riding bikes, or cooking something amazing. The world is vast and every nook and cranny asks to be loved. Why not?

When I was 13, my dad bought a used enlarger and set up a makeshift darkroom in our house. It was a pivotal moment for me, and I spent the better part of my teenage years photographing and printing hundreds of pictures of our dog, dressed up in my clothes. I think she enjoyed the spotlight. These days, I mostly take pictures of my kids but can’t resist putting a wig on my dog, Bella. It’s just too funny, and I’m pretty sure she loves it.
