Ok. Are you ready for this? All Terrain Brain is a series of one-minute musical episodes focused on the topic of money and the entrepreneurial spirit for young kids. Featuring a cast of flash-animated minimalist characters and a collage aesthetic ATB encourages kids to follow their passion when it comes to thinking about work, money and income.

Entrepreneurs have panache! zing! style! moxy!

Putting All Terrain Brain together was a joy – combining a fun look, great client and wonderful crew of animators and designers. I directed this series of 25 episodes at Global Mechanic over the Summer of 2007 and provided extra material for the All Terrain Brain website and education support materials.

All Terrain Brain is used as an educational component in schools and is being aired by PBS stations.
