This past year or so I have been working in collaboration with childrens' programming specialists Baby Octopus, creating a number of projects for Sesame Workshop and Sesame Studios. From letter and number films, to reboots of classic nursery rhymes and silly animal films. So far we've produced 20 clips and counting, with 3 more in production. It's been a busy time with plenty of silliness and fun...running muffins, dancing frogs, firefighters and even a lamb gone rouge in the city. They never mentioned such things at film school. The producers for Baby Octopus were children's television veterans, Diana Manson and Megan Laughton who's projects include "Max & Ruby" "Olivia" Peter "Rabbit" and "The Mr Men Show".
