Little Airplane Academy:
We had an amazing Little Airplane Academy session this summer and are already underway planning our next 3-day workshop in New York City this February on the heels of the annual KidScreen Summit. Our workshop entitled “How To Make A Great Preschool Series" leads participants through every step of making a great preschool series from concept to consumer products and everything in-between. The course is taught by notable children's television veterans. To date, we have taken the Academy on the road to fantastic places like London, Norway, Canada and Qatar. Our next scheduled Academy will take place at our beautiful studio at the South
Street Seaport in New York City this February 13th, 14th, and 15th.
We hope to
see you there! For more information about the Little

"The Olive Branch" Little Airplane has begun a new non-profit initiative called “Little Light Foundation.” The foundation’s goal is to create content that will help children all over the world learn about tolerance and mutual respect. The foundation’s first creative endeavor is a new animated series, “The Olive Branch” about two very different characters who overcome their differences in the branches of a lovely olive tree. Our first three beautiful segments made their world debut on Nickelodeon's global channels in June and are currently appearing on over 100 channels around the world.
