Sprite Animation Studios is a Los Angeles, CA-based CGI animation studio founded in 2002 by former members of Square USA led by Moto Sakakibara, co-director of Square Pictures and Columbia Pictures’ feature film Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within. The studio specializes in the design and creation of 3D computer animation for film and television productions, video games, and commercial advertising, and its short productions have screened at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival,[1] the SIGGRAPH Electronic Theater,[2] the Ottawa International Animation Festival,[3] and other venues.

In 2009, Sprite entered into a partnership with OLM, Inc., a famous Japanese animation studio, producer of Pokémon.[4]
