How to make a Boovie: part 1 overview

Ok, first things first, what's a Boovie?

It's our word for something that's not a book and is not a movie, it's a hybrid of both.  Every page has an animated illustration, a short looping movie that brings rich and colourful images to life (basically a very enhanced ebook -but we are not keen on the word 'ebook').

One of the double page spreads from Galdo's Gift -The Boovie

So we decided to make a short video to explain ourselves.  It's one of our first, so please be kind.
