As you’re well aware, we’ve recently wrapped up a very successful Kickstarter campaign(thanks for your support, by the way). While we’re slowly composing a post with a full breakdown of what went right and what we could’ve done better, one thing we’re really happy with is all the press we’ve gotten. First, a big thanks to Amy, Chad’s special lady and our press officer extraordinaire, for pulling overtime to make all those stories happen. Second, we thought we’d share some of our favorite clippings with you!
1. THE MERIDEN RECORD JOURNAL
This story, from The Meriden Record Journal, is cool for a number of reasons. First, it was good to see the love the hometown paper gave Clay. Love it! Second, the shirt Clay’s wearing is actually a Sesame Street crew shirt designed by Caroll himself. Third, and perhaps the reason this story made it to this list, is that it got picked up by the Associated Press and somehow found its way to a small town in Iowa where Clay’s grandmother was shocked to see her grandson in the local paper. Global village indeed.
2. THE JAMESON SHOW
We’ve been interviewed by a number of journalists, but only one puppet. Jameson, and his human friend Noah Ginex, were a ton of fun to chat with.
3. AIN’T IT COOL NEWS
Being featured in Ain’t It Cool News can go one of two ways: great or nightmarish. They’ll tell you what they think. Having their support made us feel like we’re doing something right!
4. THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
Our first source for industry news is The Hollywood Reporter. We love their “7 Days of Deals” section in which major industry transactions are broken down on a weekly basis. It was a thrill to be featured there. Side note: I frickin’ love Shia LaBeouf.
5. GOOD AFTERNOON AMERICA
It turns out that when Grover stopped by GOOD AFTERNOON AMERICA yesterday to talk about the importance of brushing your teeth, they chatted about I AM BIG BIRD. We missed this! Thankfully, HULU didn’t. You can see Grover talk about a possible cameo about 10:30 into this clip (sandwiched between a 50 Shades of Grey segment and one about “How much cleavage is too much?”). So many things are awesome about this clip, but nothing gets us giddier than knowing that Grover knows about our movie. That’s just the best thing ever.
Hopefully, there’s lots more to come!
