Hi Friends of EdenMakers Blog!
Happy Earth Day.
I have a special message from a talented and inspiring film maker, Denis Thomopoulos whose mission in life is to educate people, (children in particular), to understand and care for our earth.
Please watch the video trailer and if you like, purchase or rent the video to share with your family.
Proceeds from the sale go towards offset projects administered by Conservation International.
Here's a message from Denis explaining his creative and entertaining cartoon video called, "The Power of Poop" that is debuting today on Earth Day 2014!
As you may know, there is an immediate urgency to stabilize our climate.
This is a very serious issue I care deeply about — even though — as a cartoonist, I work to make people laugh.
The Power of Poop (and other ways to save the world!) is a half-hour cartoon musical with the big ambition of caring for the planet while having fun too.
I hope you can take a moment to watch this clip.
If you enjoy it, please share, write a review, or even embed the player so others may enjoy it as well.
We can inspire kids of all ages to take actions that make a WORLD of difference.
Thank you and please feel free to reach out to Amy or me if you have any questions or would like to see the whole film to write a review.
About Denis and Hippo Works
Denis Thomopoulos turned a Masters degree from Oxford into an early career working for world-renowned filmmakers such as David Puttnam and Irwin Winkler – only to realize his heart was in cartooning and the environment.
So Denis took a red hippo named Simon he’d drawn for a best-selling t-shirt in college and made him the star of his new eco animation studio, Hippo Works.
Denis has syndicated and licensed Simon along with a host of animal characters to companies such as AOL, National Geographic Kids, Paramount Vantage, SWAPE (Soil Water Air Protection Enterprise), Care2.com, Con Edison, and Clear Channel, among others.
The Power of Poop (and other ways to save the world!) is his first half-hour cartoon, with purchases of the film saving 1000 sq. ft. of jungle through Conservation International.
His characters also appear on organic products at Whole Foods in Southern California and on an egg sculpture for Faberge’s Big Egg Hunt in New York, April 2014, which is being auctioned at Sotheby’s to raise money for The Elephant Family, a nonprofit that protects Asian elephants’ migratory corridors.
