Who is Char?

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.

2D Animation, Something Old and Something New

Blue and red pencils, animation disks, paper, pens, hours of drawing.  I look though books with pictures of the old "masters" and watch the extras of "Backstage Disney" I wonder, is there still room for the old?  I sure hope so. I believe there is room enough in this world of entertainment for various forms of filmmaking.  Live action is necessary for many stories, CGI is great, for some stories, but 2D or hand drawn has to hold a place in the hearts and minds of audience around the globe, don't you think?  Well, I do.  As a matter of fact, I am banking on it.  I mean it, my husband and I have put EVERYTHING into this belief, this dream.  And what I love is that everyday I meet (either virtually or in person) young artists who have the same belief or dream.  

So, as Studio Kinate moves forward, we will be looking for the stories to produce and the talent to bring those stories to life.  After all, isn't that what animation is all about?
