Saying there is a lot of creative energy in our house is like saying there's some corn in the Midwest or cows in Texas, it's a complete and utter understatement. While other families may have sports or NASCAR we live squarely in the middle of a creative hotspot. We are constantly looking for ways to channel and use that creative energy in a positive and productive way.

Although at times it may seem hard to see where a healthy obsession may lead in future years as far as careers are concerned we know that it is all part of the process. Sometimes it's the process of elimination, sorting out the things they thought they would love and found out they didn't. Sometimes finding a talent that they didn't know they were extraordinary at. Either way it helps teach them the process of success, setting goals, working hard, overcoming adversity, learning confidence, and resilience. All of which are very valuable life skills.

In our house we have artists, writers, musicians, actors (oh do we have actors, they practice their dramatic skills at home for me, my husband, and their siblings as well as for audiences on the stage). And as a family of film buffs we have worked on both short films and feature film projects from pre-production through production to the completion of post production. It dawned on us that we have, talent wise, everything it takes to write, direct, and produce a web series. So that is exactly what we've set out to do.
We are excited to introduce The Mighty Kubar.
Kubar is prince and great warrior from another realm. He has been hidden away on Earth by his parents for his own protection from a formidable foe. They have cleverly placed him where no one will think to look, in the body of a puny high school freshman. Kubar struggles to accept his new stature and physical limitations as well as trying to function in a world that does not think or act the way he does. He is quickly befriended by a highly intelligent and eccentric friend, Roswell, who will try and help Kubar come to terms will his own uniqueness.

We are in pre-production right now. Crazy busy with concept art, story meetings, writing sessions,wardrobe and prop acquisitions, marketing meetings, and scheduling shoots for our first episodes. We would like to invite you along for the ride. We're all having a blast. We will be posting our experiences as we go, as we redefine Family Entertainment.
