The Co-op Philosophy
Our creative process is inclusive, as is our profit sharing model.
Decades of experience in the entertainment industry fuel our core belief that in success there is always enough to go around, which is why our partnerships are rooted in mutual trust, kindness, and respect.
We cherish the talents of all those with whom we are fortunate enough to collaborate.
We commit to protecting their interests, passions, and contributions, and we invite them all to embrace our love of storytelling and our simple mission to create together, entertain together, and profit together.
We are a highly energized collective of doers, makers and producers of imaginative content, joyfully celebrating every step of the creative process, because at EDH… Every Day’s a Holiday.
Founders & Partners
EDH Animation Co-op, co-founded by Ross Venokur & Lenore Quinonez Venokur has expanded to partner with frequent collaborator, Jason Venokur, pioneering a new era for ethical profit sharing in the animation world.
Leveraging decades-long experience as storytellers and producers in film, television, and animation, as well as relationships with the industry’s leading artists, writers, musicians, actors, directors, and studios, we are that unusual animation company that can incubate, develop, write and produce its own compelling, heart-filled and beautifully-crafted content for the family audience.
In our first year alone, EDH has partnered with Hello Einstein Studios (HES, formerly Baby Einstein) to create a slate of original CG-animated cartoons aimed at the three to six-year-old audience.
Simultaneously, we are helping to reintroduce and build out Baby Einstein’s legacy characters in the marketplace via a number of STEAM and Montessori-inspired YouTube series for toddlers. Additionally, our EDH team is partnered with internationally renown band Walk Off The Earth to develop an animated series aimed at their millions of fans.
We are committed to continuing these relationships while developing our own I.P., including our first anime series and our first in-house comedy feature. For us developing EDH means exploring and building truly cooperative partnerships with artists, musicians and creators, championing unique voices and perspectives.
