GeniusRocket is a small US advertising firm specializing in video production through a curated creative community. The company uses a curated crowdsourcing to outsource the production of creative video content, including live action, motion graphics, and animation.


GeniusRocket was co-founded in 2007 by Mark Walsh.[1] The company shifted directions in 2011, utilizing a much smaller community and a staged, "no-spec" production process.[2]


Notable clients include South by Southwest (SXSW).[3][4]
