All the hard work of the last 10 months is paying off TONIGHT when Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas premieres at 8pm on NBC!
Re-imagining the “Elf” world was both fun and daunting, but we think it came out pretty snappy, and we had a great time working with everyone on it. Thank you to Warner Bros for letting us run with this one!

Check out what folks are saying and some video links below:

Yow!

We like cartoons, Legos & Adventure Time!  Imagine our excitement when Pen Ward called us to smoosh all that stuff together.  Whooppee!   Chris Finnegan led the charge on this… pretty nifty, ay?

Understanding this kind of stuff can be tricky.  So we all banged our heads together to come up with this nifty and simple way to better get how important user privacy and protection is to Google.

Yes, we’re to blame.  We’re the nut jobs behind the Sock Puppet parody of “Flight” at last night’s Academy Awards.  Seth MacFarlane & Co. approached us with their idea and we knew we had to do it.  We’re proud to have been involved with such a silly part of the Oscars.

Say what you will about working with actors but we thought Denzel was very easy to work with.  He patiently sat around waiting for his cues.

A heartfelt “gracias” goes out to everyone that helped us out on this.  It was one of those productions that ran very smoothly, everyone had fun and the vibe was fantastic!

No socks were harmed in the making of this production.
