As if my position at WGVU couldn't get any better, I was offered the opportunity to direct four promotional videos for kids programming on WGVU. With the help of my friends Buddy the Dinosuar from Dinosaur Train, The Cat in the Hat, and Caillou (not to mention a very talented leading lady), we were able to pull of some very cool spots.
I would very much appreciate your input! Here is the first promo, and feel free to watch it and let me know what you think!
Thank you for your interest, my intrepid and loyal readers!
