    Johnny A.'s "Sleigh Ride"

    Well it’s that time of year again, and Christmas is upon us once more!

    Whenever the holiday season rolls around,  I'm reminded of the year I created an animated music video.

    In 2012 guitar virtuoso, Johnny A., asked MediaBoss to produce an animated music video for his rendition of “Sleigh Ride.” I was the animator on the project.

    Monsters of MediaBoss: Our Creative Work Space Comes Alive

    We built the ultimate creative work space when we moved into the 8,000 square foot industrial space MediaBoss now calls home. We have lime-pop support poles, a Koi pond, exposed brick and the Shoppers World sign hanging from our 13 foot ceilings.

    But we can't stop there.

    In the spirit of the upcoming Halloween season, I started to see the every day objects in our studio a little differently.

    Here's a look at The Monsters of MediaBoss!
