Fern Celebrates Five Years and Earth Day with “Fern Fables”
Executive Producer Caroline Lobo at animation and design studio Fern in Atlanta: “Fern turned five years old this March, so in celebration of our very own preschool-birthday and Earth Day, we thought it imperative we turn to the experts (kids!) for their knowledge on our titular and favorite plants.
“We created a list of questions for parents to ask their little ones. The goal was to create a short animation using audio snippets and visuals from their unique, imaginative and hysterical answers.
“We took their audio recordings and strung them together into a whimsical short. The audio included Turkish, English, and Spanish answers, as a nod to our diverse group of core team members.”
