About

If you like what you see in the pilot/proof of concept above, please help Little Starship Productions create Season 1 of the 'I Love Mud' Web series consisting of 20 1-2 minute episodes.

(4 distinct storylines across 5 episodes each).


RICK CHARETTE

Since he first found his way into the music industry during the early 1980s, singer/songwriter Rick Charette has amassed a catalog of hundreds of songs and 12 albums gaining a large following fueled by over 30 years of entertaining generations of families playing live music touring schools and concert venues throughout the United States. In August of 2018, Rick announced his semi-retirement on his website and Facebook, saying that he will no longer perform at schools, but will keep his options open to occasionally play at events with his Bubblegum Band.

10,000+ App Store downloads
10,000+ App Store downloads

Little Starship Productions founded by Krishna Ramnath began creating interactive learning apps for preschoolers inspired by the music of Rick Charette in July of 2015 that have since received the 5-star 'Best of the Best' rating from independent review site bestappsforkids.com and to date have been downloaded more than 10,000 times from the App Store.

Now the educational start-up is looking to create it's first YouTube Web series for preschoolers, 'I Love Mud' inspired by one of Rick's most popular songs.


CONTENT 

The visual concept for the 'I Love Mud' Web series is a mix between an animated newspaper comic strip, silent movie reel and Saturday Morning cartoon serial. Delightful animated characters in simple stylized settings will help nurture your child's imagination.

The educational curriculum for this series was inspired by a recent article entitled, 'Diversity: Brought to you by the letter E: Exposure & Empathy' by Jennifer Kotler Clarke and is being designed to help children learn about kindness, empathy, and understanding the world from other people’s point of view.

Season 1 of the Web series will consist of 20 1-2 minute episodes to be released daily on the Little Starship YouTube channel. Each storyline will span across 5 episodes.

PRODUCTION

If we are able to meet our Kickstarter funding goal, production of the series will take place between June 1st and August 31st 2019. With a target launch date for the first episode on the Little Starship You tube channel on September 1, 2019.

Risks and challenges

With 20 years of animation/video/app production and project management experience under my belt, and a network of talented creative collaborators I feel that there is a low risk associated with creating this Web series. I am certain that you and your family will look forward to and will be sure to enjoy each and every episode.

Although I don't anticipate delays, I will be documenting every stage of production on the production blog and will be sure to keep all backers informed of any delays should they occur and I will provide updated time estimates for completion.
