-- Gwen Austin Studios announced today the upcoming release of their new animated series, Saving Soup
. The series will premiere on a YouTube channel of the same name late this Summer. Saving Soup
is an animated short set in a mythical yesteryear and geared towards 4 to 7-year-olds. At its core, Saving Soup
is a story of inspiration. It has been described as "a highlight reel of history's greatest advances, whirring along one inventive frame at a time." It is a color-drenched space lined with mild hazards and their resulting triumphs, demonstrating to the viewer that most everything around us–from each ball of fire to each ball of lint–grew from its own unique origin story. The show's theme is to convey to children and parents alike that the same is true for each or our stories, and that failures along the way are acceptable, even important, parts of the creative process.
According to the show's creator and executive producer, Gwen Austin, "It's high time that we all hear more of these stories, and one of Saving Soup
's messages is that telling them should always be celebrated, never feared, and, quite often, hilarious. Share your story with the world, even if it takes a few times to get it right!"
The Saving Soup
product line will be introduced to the retailers June 10th
at the Astra Marketplace and Academy in Pittsburgh. Gwen Austin Studios will be in Booth NP5, located in the New Players Park. The introductory product line includes: plush toys, puzzles, reusable school lunch bags, and a card game. The products are for children ages 4 and up. www.gwenaustinstudios.com
