At first, I was like, "WHAT?! Who's got time to do THAT?!"
But the more I thought about it,
the more I saw the wisdom in the Mighty Knox's words.
I could make a really cool animated promo for 1000 Times No and send it out to all the bookstores, kid-lit blogs, schools, etc, etc.
All I needed were a couple suckers... I mean... sooper talented friends to help me make it! And boy did I find them, starting with Curious Pictures After Effects Master Director Dave Rasura who volunteered to animate it. Next I bribed my 5 year old son Parker with a promise of Legos, begged some old KND pals like actress Jennifer Hale and sound chef Lou Esposito, and before I knew it, we were rolling. And less than a month later...
I give to you the teaser for 1000 Times No!
ROLL IT, DAVE!!!
And I can't forget to give a huge shout out to all those involved.
You guys are my rock and I can't thank you enough!
