The four of us forming Butcher Bird Studios have been working together for a while now. But, this project will always hold a special spot for me. It was our first official gig as Butcher Bird Studios. The City of West Hollywood hired us to bring a fresh look to the television ad for their Ninth Annual Book Fair.

Moodoo Puppets and Upright Citizens Brigade’s Luka Jones. Sounds like a good time.
