Tell us about yourself

Daz Buddies Studio is a creative venture that was born out of a shared passion for storytelling and animation. Based in Monterrey, México, and the Texas Rio Grande Valley our team of talented artists and animators came together with the vision of not just creating an animated series, but establishing a name for ourselves in the world of animation. Led by creator Jesus Mendoza brings a wealth of experience in management, we set out to create content that not only entertains but also educates.

The studio officially took shape in late September 2023, with the goal of producing shorts and eventually venturing into feature films. With a team of five dedicated associate artists, we set out on this exciting journey, fueled by our collective love for animals children's wellbeing and storytelling.

Servando Torres, one of our team members recommended Moho after Lost Marble announced Moho 14. None of us had prior experience with it, but Ivan Rascón, Technical Director, quickly mastered rigging in less than a month. Through him we learned enough to release an animated music video in the same timeframe. Since then, our output has been steadily improving, thanks in large part to Moho.


Where do you get inspiration?

Our inspiration stems from our deep-rooted love for animals and the art of storytelling. Drawing from our team's diverse backgrounds and interests, we strive to create content that strikes a balance between entertainment and education. Whether it's exploring the antics of lovable animal characters or weaving narratives that resonate with audiences of all ages, our inspiration comes from the world around us and the stories waiting to be told.



What’s your hardware setup?

In our studio, we have a mix of hardware setups tailored to the specific needs of each team member. On average, our workstations are equipped with high-performance specs such as an i7 processor, RTX 3060 graphics card, and 32GB of RAM. This setup ensures that our artists have the necessary tools to bring their creative visions to life efficiently and effectively.

Can you talk about the “Daz Buddies" series and how it was made using Moho?

"Daz Buddies" is a heartwarming animated series created by Jesus Mendoza, with a mission to educate children about pet safety.
