The founder, Brian Chaney, was an engineer turned into a creative professional. Having worked in a technical field for many years, he had more desire to release his artistic and creative side. His hobby of 3d animation and graphics made it possible for him to land a job quickly within a prominent film and video production company.
Brian's past experience showed to be a great asset to his success in the film and video industry. He worked his way through the ranks starting as a video editor (linear & non-linear) and lead animator eventually becoming the Vice President of Production.
In 2005, Brian recognized an opportunity in the educational media market for a more effective teaching media. This opportunity drove Brian to start Abacus Studios, Inc. and he took his chances and created the award-winning science series called X-Science. With his passion for science and obsession with quality, Brian began to set a new standard for classroom tools.
