We were approached by Kim Thé, founder of Pebble Star Productions to help her develop Will’s Jams multimedia live show starring kid’s entertainer Will Stroet. Will’s Jams is a campy and educational series of music videos for preschoolers airing on CBC Kids and Kidoodle.tv
With just the fare amount of time to produce Will’s Jams live show for his 2017 summer tour around China, we embarked on the journey of creating a show that could teach and explain visually, textually and verbally some of Will’s Jams most famous and engaging songs, both in english and chinese.
In order to accomodate the time limits of the project, we strategically repurposed some of the music videos to cut down on some of our production time. A combination of illustration, animation and editing techniques solved all our needs during the visual development phase. One of the most interesting parts of the live multimedia show was the integration of a live camera feed through a small Sony Action camera set up on stage, streaming the kids and public. This little detail added such a great level of experience by showing that kids go nuts when on camera. We are constantly amazed by the capabilities of streaming from such small devices at such level of quality and definition and enjoy incorporating that into our work.
Working with Will and Kim left us with such good taste and reasoning behind our trade that it has driven us to explore more kid focused projects. #ourkidswithin
