If I should stay
I would only be in your way
So I’ll go but I know
I’ll thinkof you every step of the way

And I… will always love you, ooh
Will always love you
My darling, you…

Bittersweet memories –
That is all I’m taking with me.
So good-bye.
Please don’t cry:
We both know I’m not what you, you need

And I… will always love you
I… will always love you
You, ooh

Discovery Kids Latin America secures license for the animated series ‘Nature Cat’

9 Story Media announced that it has licensed the hit children’s series Nature Cat (80 x 11’) to Discovery Kids Latin America. Discovery Kids Latin America, the leading preschool network in the region, also airs 9 Story’s Wild Kratts and Peg + Cat.

Created by the Emmy award winning creative team at Spiffy Pictures and co-produced by Spiffy Pictures and WTTW Chicago, 9 Story handles international distribution and consumer products outside of the USA while HiHat Media handles brand licensing within the USA. The series was nominated for a 2016 Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing in an Animation Program as well as a Television Critics Association Award for Outstanding Achievement in Youth Programming.


Aimed at children three to eight years old, Nature Cat helps children relate to and engage with the natural world. Nature Cat can’t wait to get outside for a day of nature excursions and bravery, but there’s one problem: he’s a house cat with no instincts for nature. With the help of his animal friends, Nature Cat embarks on action-packed adventures that include exciting missions full of investigation, “aha” discovery moments and humour, all while inspiring children to go outside and play.

Nature Cat also airs on PBS KIDS in the USA and on Family CHRGD in Canada. Internationally, the series has been previously licensed to SVT (Sweden), TG4 (Ireland), SIC (Portugal), Canal Panda (Spain), AMC Networks (Spain), Nick Jr (Italy) via Funwood Media, Cineplex (Thailand), Discovery Asia (Indian Subcontinent), Mediacorp (Singapore),  E Junior(Middle East), and Hop TV (Israel).

‘Injustice 2′ brings in Catwoman, Cheetah and Poison Ivy

Injustice 2 is possibly one of the most anticipated game coming this year. The first edition being a fair success, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment’s superhero action game is all set to mark its return on 16 May over PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Created by NetherRealm Studios, the upcoming edition catches up from where its predecessor had left. Batman will be leading a team of superheroes to rebel against the oppressive rule of Superman.

Since August last year, the developers have been quite subtle about the game and have barely released any information regarding the game. However, February 2017 has been quite a month for the enthusiasts of the game as they were bestowed with various trailers, teasers and reveals.

The most recent trailer for the game was launched last month which showed off Braniac.

Now, three new playable characters have been revealed by the developers, namely Poison Ivy, Cheetah and Catwoman. Titled ‘Here Come The Girls’, the trailer also features Black Canary, who is now confirmed to be a playable character. The brief video gives us glimpses of how these characters will fight accompanied by what looks like Poison Ivy’s super move.

We can expect some in depth or dedicated reveal videos for the characters sometime soon.

Take Note – Life Story Love Story

Take Note Store, a pens and stationery store in Toronto, has released “Life Story Love Story”, an emotional short film timed to coincide with Valentines Day. The 4-minute short film tells the life-long story of a relationship between two people from the notes they leave each other. This love story is particularly poignant given the dominance of today’s digital communication. Texts, emails, and posts have largely replaced the role that handwritten letters, cards, and notes once served. The retailer which sells specialty pens and stationery from around the world is planning to support the video with promoted posts through the month of February.

Take Note Life Story Love Story

A study by Docmail found that one in three adults hasn’t had reason to hand write anything for six months. Many are quick to point out the downside of this change. Author Philip Hensher, in his Wall Street Journal article, ‘The Lost Art of the Handwritten Note,’ argues, “Email and text exchanges won’t be treasured in the way that my teenage letters, scribbled journals and postcards have been for years.”

Jolanta Petrycka, the owner of Take Note, has seen this shift first hand, but doesn’t believe that handwritten letters and notes are a thing of the past. “Most of our day to day communication now is very utilitarian. But still, there’s nothing like receiving a handwritten letter in the mail or a note from someone you love.”

That’s exactly what advertising agency, BBDO Toronto, set out to capture with this piece. “Leaving a note for someone is so much more personal and thoughtful than a text,” says Chris Booth, an associate creative director behind the work. “We wanted to remind people how meaningful such a simple thing can be.”

The Take Note campaign was developed at BBDO Toronto by executive creative directors Denise Rossetto and Todd Mackie, associate creative directors Chris Booth and Joel Pylypiw, group account director Rebecca Flame, agency producer Beatrice Bodogh.

Filming was shot by director Chris Booth and Joel Pylypiw via Skin and Bones with director of photography Kris Belchevski and producer Chelsea Strachan.

Post production was produced at Saints Editorial and Alter Ego by online editor David Whiteson and offline editor Brian Williams, and colourist Tricia Hagoriles.

Sound design and music were produced at Imprint Music by Fraser MacDougall and Tim White.
