In 2014, animation mavericks Mikey Please and Dan Ojari united their creative prowess to launch Hornet's directing collective, Parabella. The duo, who had previously collaborated on memorable projects like Marilyn Myller and BAFTA-winning The Eagleman Stag, brought together a rich history of mutual understanding and shared vision. Ojari, also recognized for his renowned short Slow Derek, which dazzled audiences at Sundance and Cannes in 2012, further enriches Parabella's narrative depth.
