Thank you, Upworthy! Our friends at Upworthy.com posted Brother’s Day to their social media accounts, and now 31,000 Squirrel Friends have watched our documentary. Hooray!
If you haven’t checked it out yet, you can watch here:
“Brother’s Day” was an official selection during the opening night of the Nickel Independent Film Festival in June. “Brother’s Day” and “What’s Inside?” also screened at the festival’s Children’s Matinee in August. Squirrel Friends were thrilled to share the shorts with the crowd in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Thanks again for having us, Nickel!
“Brother’s Day” is spreading around the world! Over 6,500 Squirrel Friends (and counting!) have viewed the documentary short about three brothers and the handmade holiday they created to celebrate their special bond.
We also received a shout out from the bloggers over at Bunch Family, who loved the spirit of the film. They wrote: “We think they’re really onto something here. Can we teach our kids to appreciate one another when they’re little so that they don’t take each other for granted when they get older? A special holiday just might be the way.” Check it out here.
Thanks to all of our Squirrel Friends who have shared our film! We’d like to share one million virtual acorns of gratitude with you all.
Are you a kid 8-12 in the NYC area? Do you like to make and/or fix things? Would you like to appear in a web series? If this sounds like you, Squirrel Friends wants you to fix broken objects on camera! Don’t fear, fixing experts will be on-hand to assist through the whole process.
The shoot will take place on a weekend morning in October or November and will last approximately 3 hours. All participants will receive snacks as well as a copy of the project. As a bonus, fixer kids get to take home the object they fixed!
If you are interested, please send an e-mail to email@example.com with a photo, a brief description of why you want to fix something, and thoughts on how you might try to fix something!
