The Telly Awards: Bronze Winner for Branded Content

We’re excited to learn that our 2018 Kickstarter video for Papercuts by Suzy Taylor, directed by Ka-Lok Ho of Erudite Pictures, has won a bronze Telly Award for Branded Content.

For this project it was important for us to highlight Mrs. Taylor’s story more-so than focus on the product we were selling. The video was shot on location at her home studio in England to give it a warm and personal touch, giving viewers (and backers) a glimpse at the delicate process of hand-cut paper art. Although produced as an introduction video to the Kickstarter campaign, we intended it to live on its own as a vignette about Suzy Taylor and her beautiful craft.

We had worked with Erudite Pictures previously on the 2016 Cardistry-Con Official Video, and were confident in handing them this project. Their work is extremely professional and we’re thrilled they were recognized.

Featured on Side Hustle School

The popular business podcast for entrepreneurs, Side Hustle School, featured our story in episode #697. Host Chris Guillebeau talks about our first product sold at fifteen years old, as well as our business today and how it all evolved and continues to grow. Forewarning, there are lots of magic jokes throughout the episode. All in all though, Chris does a fantastic job with the podcast and we’re honored to have been included.
