We moved to Michigan in 2014 and fell in love with the scenery and the people. In 2016, we attended a Keuring event, which is a judging venue of Friesian foals, mares, and stallions. We were awestruck. We had only admired the horses in movies and were overwhelmed by their beauty up close. As spectators, we had tons of questions about the horses and the event and found the community willing to educate us. While talking to owners we soon learned that there was a need to support them and others in the equine industry with digital marketing and video support, so we’ve made that our mission.

We both love horses, we love road trips and we’d been looking for a way to work together. Seemed like a match made in heaven. SO, here we are, pooling our talents and passion, along with friends in the creative and tech industries, ready to support those in the Equine industry, starting with our Friesian friends.

Walt & El Grupo-A must see documentary

My husband and I just got home from watching an amazing documentary about Walt's visit to South America in 1941. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dg-0vPvd16E) What an inspirational documentary. I loved how they made the images come alive with the 3D effect. There is a quote in the film that rings true to me, "life likes those who like life."
What inspired me most was the team Walt took with him. From Charles Walcott, who absorbed the music of the culture, to people like Mary Blair, Norm Ferguson and of course, Frank Thomas. Walt and his team seemed to immerse themselves into the textures, colors, flavors and sounds of South America. So if I can encourage any of you who aspire to work in the animation industry, experiment with color, medium and techniques. Paint, draw, sketch everything around you. If you write, write everything. Find the stories in the little things, even the drop of water on a leaf. If you are a musician, injest the sounds around you and let the melody tell the story. Dream and live the dream.
Until next time, let your imagination be unlimited. Best Char
