The last year has been an exciting whirlwind. We're growing and moving....
First things first: we have this beautiful new web site and blog! We're sad to say goodbye to our old blogger blog here, but we needed more room. Thank-you to everyone who visited, commented and wrote to us on our old blog — we hope you come hang out with us here, too
We started as a series of postcards in clothing stores:
became a popular book series ...
...and now we are jumping into stop-motion animation with our new interactive stories which we are developing with the award-winning team at Loud Crow — the team behind Peanuts' A Charlie Brown Christmas, Richard Scarry's Busytown and Beatrix Potter. We're so happy and excited to join their family, along with our production partners, TwoFold Films and Sheepnoir.
For us, this has meant an amazing learning curve, especially learning to work with a larger team when we're so used to just working together — as two friends. Also: learning how to make stop-motion-ready art; learning how to direct ; learning how interactive storybook apps work; learning how to balance our family life in whole new ways and, possibly most challenging, understanding twitter.
The results have been rewarding and amazing. Our first storybook will be available on iTunes this fall. It's better than we could have dreamed. You can see how proud we are, above. Those are dolls of us! We had a cameo in one of our new stories.
