JHI is the sister-company of Tau Films, an alliance of an Animation/VFX studio and an academy (with locations in Hyderabad, Mumbai, Kuala Lumpur, Beijing, Los Angeles, and Vancouver). 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 Animation & VFX professionals" is the core tenet of John Hughes.
