Of the acknowledgement, scale, and the storybooth offering, co-founder Marcy Sinel said, "We are humbled by this recognition and by the tens of thousands of kids around the world who've gone beyond simply clicking our next video on YouTube, to investing their time and trust to record and submit their stories. The stories these young people have lived, and tell, are remarkable. The millions of young people who tell, watch, and comment on these real stories show themselves to be authentic, self-aware, respectful, open, supportive, sympathetic, and resilient. They demonstrate true heart, and it is both refreshing and inspiring."
Co-Founder Joshua Sinel commented, "At a time when most adults in the public and political spotlight are 'acting like children' with the very worst behavior, it is really nice to see the young people out there rising to the occasion, rising above, and honestly, more often than not, getting it right! Ironically, it's the antithesis of what we are seeing in the media right now."
Representing what's important to kids, the topics that they want to share and talk about, storybooth has become an outlet for young people to express themselves creatively, solve problems and support each other, and to ultimately realize that they are not alone in the experiences they accumulate. Because the platform is so powerful and entertaining, dozens of noted YouTube Creators are collaborating with storybooth on stories and co-distributing them to their audiences, introducing this new format and the storybooth brand to their fans.
storybooth is a first of its kind storytelling platform that collects real stories from young people in their own voices through its mobile digital studio, brings them to life in animated shorts, and distributes them globally through our YouTube channel, mobile app, and website. Headquartered in Greenwich CT, storybooth is the first property launched by Created Entertainment.
