Ben Stassen Set to Direct 3D Animated Sequel ‘Bigfoot Superstar’ (EXCLUSIVE)
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!
If you’re a physical media aficionado, we’re happy to announce that you can pick up The Nut Job 2 on both Blu-Ray and DVD today.

It’s the end of The Nut Job 2 journey, and we’re happy people get to see the movie again!
The Nut Job 2 is now available on iTunes as an early release movie. The digital copy has all the extra features from the Blu-Ray / DVD, which hits stores on November 14.

The Son of Bigfoot has been released in China! Check out the cool Chinese poster below.
Fun fact: The literal translation of the Chinese text is “My Father Is King Of The Forest” – which makes sense, since Bigfoot is definitely king of the forest!

These are a few photos taken at Heitor’s studio in Santa Monica when he was writing the score.
