Nerd Corps Entertainment was a former name of a 3D computer animation studio located in British Columbia, Canada. Founded by former Mainframe Entertainment producers Asaph Fipke and Chuck Johnson in 2002, the company was acquired by DHX Media (now WildBrain) on December 24, 2014. As of 2016, the Nerd Corps name has been phased out in favour of the generic DHX Media name.
The studio's notable productions include the animated series Slugterra, Storm Hawks and League of Super Evil. Prior to the acquisition by DHX Media in 2014, Nerd Corps handled producing and developing all aspects of their television properties in-house, including promotional materials and creative services for merchandising and licensing partners.
In 2016, the former Nerd Corps Entertainment team was relocated to a new facility in Vancouver. The new building also houses the former Studio B Productions (a 2D animation studio which DHX Media acquired in 2007).
