H5 is a French graphics and animation studio started in 1996. With Ludovic Houplain's art direction, its work can mostly be found in the fields of music video (visuals for Air, Super Discount, Etienne de Crécy, Le Tone, Alex Gopher, Darkel, Cosmo Vitelli, Demon) and luxury advertising (Dior, Cartier, Hugo Boss, Hermès, Lancôme).

Since 1999, H5 has also worked as a collective of directors. They made their first animated clips (animated typography for Alex Gopher, cartoon for Zebda, digital animations for Super Furry Animals and Playgroup).

H5 made the clips for Röyksopp's "Remind Me" (which won the MTV Europe Award for Best Video in 2002), Massive Attack's "Special Cases", Goldfrapp's "Twist", and a series of advertising campaigns for France and the wider world: Areva, Audi, Citroën, Volkswagen's "Train Fantôme" (1st award Film Cinema, Club of the DA on 2006). H5 is at present represented in France by Addict.

Their first short film, Logorama, was selected at the Week of Criticism at the Cannes Film Festival 2009 and at CineVegas in 2009. The film won the Kodak Prix at Cannes and won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film at the 82nd Academy Awards.

In parallel, the work of H5 was presented in numerous exhibitions and festivals, in Paris (National Center of Art and Culture Georges-Pompidou, Paris sleepless night 2007, French National Library, Gallery Anatome), London (Institute of Contemporary Arts, National Museum of Photography[dubious ], British Film Institute), Tokyo (Sendai Mediatheque), Rotterdam (NAI), New York (MoMA) and Los Angeles (Egyptian Theater).
