(UPDATE: November 2018) This video was received nicely on YouTube initially, as were most of my videos. If I recall correctly, after about 5 years it had amassed some 40K views, which made me happy. But…somewhere along the line, something changed. Someone, somewhere linked to it from a high-traffic site or shared it in some large forum and it just exploded. As of this writing, it has amassed nearly 2.5 MILLION views. Thanks so much to all who have viewed and shared it over the years! 🙂
I’m pleased to be able to announce the release of the third in a series of “legit” videos for kids. The first was Yellowberry Jam, released in early March 2011. The second was The Fantabulous Cumulo-Nimbuli Pump, an animated story released a couple weeks later.
This new one is called Hovercar, and it’s based on a song I wrote some years ago about a boy who own a hovercar…which he loves for all the obvious reasons, but feels he has to keep a secret because he doesn’t want word to get out, less people feel jealous that he has such a cool toy and they don’t.
Rather than sing this one myself, I invited my friend D. Skite (Dave Schuiteman) to sing it. I created the music tracks, but they were significantly enhanced by my friend Dave Matchack, who then mixed and mastered it, and I found a fellow Ohioan named Kyle Akers to take my vision of a LEGO stop-motion animation and kick it up about 10 notches! Finally, I added the sound effects to help bring it all together.
I hope you enjoy it!
