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.

I'm BACK! Review of Brave

As much as I love horses, had to choose this picture of

It has been a long time since I've written anything so I decided it is time to get back in the habit of posting something related to Studio Kinate and the animation industry.  So, I will begin getting back with a little something about the movie Brave.  


First, I like Brave.  It has been a long time since I've looked forward to owning a DVD/Blu-Ray, but I will look forward to owning this one.  Not just because it is "Pixar's first female lead" but because it is a good film and a great story.  Written by Brenda (Chapman) (I don't know why she wasn't able to finish directing the film), I feel as a mother--with a daughter--I could relate to the mother/daughter dynamics.  It's a good family film, although parts may be too scary for preschool children. 


I thought the visuals were stunning and really take you into Merida's world. I loved all the colors and textures. I've never been to Scotland but it is on my bucket list!  I thought the storytelling was strong and comedy was appropriate and helped breakup some of the tension.  I would suggest a tissue or two... 


If you haven't seen Brave, go.  Bring your sons; they will love the humor (and big sisters will relate to the little brothers...lol). It isn't a "chic flick" just because it is about a princess..!  


Okay, sorry I've been gone so long.  You can always check out the Studio Kinate FB page and Twitter for posting related to animation, films and related current topics.


ONWARD and UPWARD!
Char
