JHI is the sister-company of Tau Films, an alliance of a global creative content and visual effects studio with an academy. Its mission is to realize John Hughes' vision of educating artists, production, and technical staff in locations where Tau Films/JHI has a presence, and to serve the global animation and VFX community.
John Hughes is the co-founder/President of Tau Films and of JHI. In 1987, he co-founded Rhythm & Hues (R&H), an Animation and VFX house that received 3 Academy Awards for Best VFX in 1995, 2008, and 2013. Since 200, JHI and its preceding entity, Rhythm & Hues University/RHU (2007-2012), have been creating global societies.
Building communities of content creation professionals is the core tenet of John Hughes.
