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.

Virginia Animation Studio: part II

I want to produce animation.  I want to tell stories. And I believe that Virginia is the place to make it all happen.  Yep, right here in Virginia.  It has almost everything, beautiful settings, wonderful people, great communities, agriculture and high tech, family, friends and some of the most talented artists, technicians and other film professionals.  

Virginia has some amazing innovative schools. There are high schools with teachers who understand those Kinesthetic learners, those right-brain youth whose creative minds are just waiting to explore ways of expressing themselves.  They are the storytellers of tomorrow.  One of the best creative higher-ed programs, Kinetic Imaging, is at Virginia Commonwealth University (http://www.vcu.edu/arts/kineticimaging/dept/).  

Virginia, and the surrounding communities in the DC Metroplex, have amazing artistic talent of all ages. I want to work with young artists, disadvantaged artists and creative people who, like me, had to take detours as life took them down side roads. Roads that were so rough and hard to maneuver that we put all our energies into the journey rather than the dreams of our youth. 

Virginia has some amazing veteran animators, too. Some of them have worked for the top studios in the industry, on films that we all have loved but for reasons as diverse as our region,  have come home to Virginia and the DC Metro area.  They have so much to give and I want to make it possible.  They are still able to produce and desire to mentor young talent, the way that they were mentored.

Yep, I am building a new generation animation studio in Virginia.  I've met so many talented individuals, people just needing a chance, willing to go that extra mile to make their dream come true.  We are all reaching reaching for the stars! Dreams do come true right here in Virginia.
