Just in time for National Bow Tie Day! Jen and I released Mo’s Bows to the public! After over 35 film festivals from as nearby as BAM to as far away as Doha, Qatar - we’ve had a great time showing this incredible film off! If you love it, we’d love if you shared! :)
This commercial for Comcast aired throughout the Olympics and included the one and only Chica getting a kiss from a kiddo from a shoot I directed! All of us at Sprout were thrilled! :)
So thrilled with this Father’s Day link. :) It was great to be able to produce something that showcases all sorts of families to the children who watch our show. <3
A goal for 2016 complete!
Spending my days working with talent, and wanted to stretch myself to see what it was like on their side of the microphone! Many people have commented that I have a unique voice, so I thought I’d try the art of voice over out!
I enlisted the help of my pal Shelley Shenoy, and a few months later I now present my super-awesome commercial voice demo reel!
Patrick Warburton (AKA Puddy from Seinfeld!) came by the Sunny Side Up studios, and got to see what crowded really means! :) Check it out - super fun stuff!
What great news! Can You Imagine That? is nominated for the prestigious Prix Jeunesse Prize! The Prix Jeunesse is a every-other-year celebration of amazing quality children’s programming from around the world, and it’s an honour to attend- let alone be involved in a show that’s nominated!
Check out the music video for Makayla who wants to be a lifeguard, surrounded by artwork inspired from her drawings - that I had the pleasure of directing!
Congrats x a million to the incredible team at Radical Sheep Productions!
One of the best parts of December was taking part in NBCUniversal’s “The Idea” contest. Management asked all people working for Comcast/ NBCUniversal to come up with an idea and pitch it, and from the 3000 applications they received, they chose 25 semi-finalists and my idea was one of them! What?!
We got to pitch in the Late Night with Seth Meyers Studio, in the style of a Shark Tank-eque pitch, and we had to keep it at 2 minutes. From there, 10 finalists were selected and my idea was one of those, so we did the pitch the next day to the presidents of Comcast/NBCUniversal which was an unforgettable experience.
While I didn’t win, it was so cool to up my pitch skills to the next level, and the people I met were incredible. It’s always so inspiring and joy-inducing to hear innovative ideas, and this was the perfect forum for it! Thanks to the amazing folks at the TalentLab at NBCUniversal for putting this on!
And then there are days where you get emails saying, “we’d love to invite you to the Ajyal Youth Film Festival as part of the Doha Film Institute” and you squeal in joy that the beauty and fun of Mo’s Bows will be shared with a whole other part of the world.
Jen and I are packing our bags and heading to Qatar for the festival which is such an honour.
Tim Gunn was the best sport ever- he had so much fun designing with Chica and Tim, and we had so much fun playing with Tim Gunn! A pleasure- and one of the silliest segments we’ve done on Sunny Side Up is a result of this! :)
Producing this has made me so proud. I love having kiddos on the show, and these ones worked so hard on practicing the updated birthday song for Sprout and Sunny Side Up! :) Check it out!
