We had a great time speaking at the TIFF Kids industry festival, where we talked about our approach to writing animated features. It was nice to talk with all the filmmakers who attended. Thanks to TIFF for inviting us!
We were recently in Belgium to meet with nWave Pictures and talk about future projects. The team at nWave made Son of Bigfoot, and it was great to chat with them and see their fantastic studio in Brussels.
In some foreign territories, Son of Bigfoot was called Bigfoot Junior, as you can see from the posters hanging in the lobby.
They also gave us some awesome Son of Bigfoot crew shirts!
The movie we wrote, Son of Bigfoot, just won the Lumiere Award for best 3D animated feature film. Congratulations to Ben Stassen and the team at nWave!
