New eCard – Hungry Beaver!

With the arrival of our newest birthday eCard, Hungry Beaver, we decided to pick the brain of the artist Ken Turner. Though this card is short and sweet, it sure takes a bite out of birthdays! 1) Where did you get the idea? Well the idea and execution was all there in the story reel animatic.  […]

New eCard – Forever Immature

In our newest birthday eCard, Forever Immature, we see that age is just a number and that growing older does not necessarily mean growing up.

Interns Join the Team This Summer

It’s that time again, when the summer sun heats up the beach and the days are so long it is light until 8:30pm. It’s also the time of year we fill our office with the fresh faces of the interns. We had an extremely difficult time narrowing down the talent, but after multiple school visits, […]

Magical Brew-The Writing Process

The newest addition to our St. Patricks’s Day eCard collection, Magical Brew, is set to a very catchy Irish jingle! Our in-house writer, Scott, is the lyrical genius behind it, so we sat down with him to get the scoop on how he gets into his writing groove. Have you ever written a song like […]

Jarl’s in Charge

Typically, we like to use friends and family when we cast a secondary character in one of our Original videos.  For our upcoming Obama video, we needed to find someone in their 40/ 50s with a commanding physical presence to play a military General, and nobody from our immediate circle fit the bill.  So where […]
