Lehen Productions (pronounced lee-uhn)​ is a Washington, D.C.-based post-production company specializing in documentary video editing, color grading, digital animation, and motion design.


Lehen Productions was founded in January 2015 by then USC School of Cinematic Arts student Jennifer Smart. Jennifer is a 2D animator and documentarian who has been producing films and digital artwork for more than eight years. She has spent two years as an editor at National Geographic Digital, and currently works at Newsy editing and creating animations for long-form digital documentaries.


She was born and raised in San Diego by a model-rocketry-loving Star Wars fan and an animal rights activist, resides in downtown LA, and spends nights dreaming of movies and the Milky Way. Her main prerogative is to interweave animation and non-fiction film in order to engage mainstream audiences with advanced scientific concepts and social justice causes.
