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.

What is the Meaning of Success for You?

The other night I watched the 2009 movie, Fame.  I'm not going to get into the shortcoming of this film I really want to talk about success.  There is a dialog near the end of the movie that inspired me. Here it is:

There are some things success is not; it's not fame, it's not money or power. Success is waking up in the morning so excited about what you have to do that you literally fly out the door.  It's getting to work with people you love. Success is connecting with the world and making people feel.  It's finding a way to bind together people who have nothing in common but a dream.  It's falling asleep at night knowing you did the best job you could.  Success is joy and freedom and friendship .. and success is love.

I needed to be reminded about what is MY meaning of success and it comes down to the fact that I LOVE animators.  I love their passion and their ability to create worlds from imagination.  I love that they can take still images and make them move with such graceful flow, that it boggles my mind.  I love the unlimited possibilities that are just around the corner for Studio Kinate and our family of artists.  And despite what may seem like setbacks to me, are perfect timing for what will be. I love the success that comes each day even when it is hard for me to see it. 

Studio Kinate is our success story.  

Until next time, believe that YOUR imagination is unlimited and you will fly!
