Cowboy Bear Ninja creates films, television, and branded content.
The company was founded by friends in 2011 with a goal of using filmmaking craft to champion important ideas, and thereby help people see the world in new ways. Originally Cowboy Bear Ninja had a focus on short films for agencies, brands and NGOs. Since 2015 Cowboy Bear Ninja has also developed and produced tv shows for major networks.
Television produced at Cowboy Bear Ninja includes LIQUID SCIENCE, a tour through the world of science hosted by Wu-Tang Clan's GZA, now streaming on Netflix, and the game show PAID OFF WITH MICHAEL TORPEY, which premiered to acclaim and widespread press coverage, and airs on truTV. Prominent ads include the Playtex ad for Xtra, a fake product endorsed by D'Arcy Carden which was named by Source Creative as one of 2018's best ads, and a GEICO campaign that was Promax-nominated as Funniest Promo.
Cowboy Bear Ninja’s development and production processes stem from the company’s history and values, and are designed to harness the power of collaboration. Team building, communication, and empathy are the critical tools applied to the work created at Cowboy Bear Ninja.
