Hi, all.

Due to your generosity, we have been privileged to spend the last year working on App: The Human Story. As you may recall, our first shoot after funding was at App Camp For Girls' second Portland session. It was amazing to see these 12-13 year old girls dive right into Xcode on day one. We saw and captured footage as they completed "Hello World" and suddenly, gleefully realized they wielded the ability to make Xcode say whatever they wanted. By the end of the week, they would be presenting completed apps.

As you probably already know, Jean and her team are awesome. They happen to be in the last week of their Indiegogo campaign to expand the program to four more cities, and we wanted to give them what little push we could, and invite you to do the same. 

So to celebrate the great work App Camp For Girls is doing, here's our latest short video. Please help them out by sharing it if you enjoy it.

A very special thanks to Ashley Nelson-Hornstein for voicing the piece.

      We had such a blast last summer with Jake and Jed during the August session. I am so impressed with the beautiful film clip and can't wait to see the completed project! Thanks again for helping App Camp For Girls! You rock.
