March Magic!

Spellbound_pasdedeux_800p.png

Spring cleaning has begun. Out with the old and in with the new. We're sifting through everything in our plans, projects, servers and connections and working on a better, faster, more fantastic version of Big Top Ballet Inc.

It's a little bit of magic cleaning up and letting go. Acknowledging what has worked, what has failed  and what didn't get enough 'magic' otherwise known in studio terms as 'productive attention'. 

Things that we're happy with: Google Cloud and App Engine for our online games, Unity for Game Development, Adobe and Autodesk for Game Asset creation, Evernote for project notes and task management and although we haven't completely integrated, Gamesparks looks promising.  

Some changes that we're excited about include: a switch to G Suite services, full domain transfer to Squarespace.com (Thank you, Keanu Reeves! ), and perhaps the biggest change is our Spring move to New York City and becoming an American company. Some of the  behind the scenes magic that we wanted to share.   

 

Happy Easter Bunny

Just as soon as all the Valentine's chocolates and gifts have disappeared from store shelves, new stock for Easter (chocolate and pastel jelly beans) shows up. Spring is the season for new beginnings to which Easter is synonymous. There's nothing like a fresh start. Although Easter isn't here until April 16th, in anticipation we've added an Easter Bunny Ballerina sticker to OMG! for iMessage.  Bunnies do have a tendencies to multiply quickly. So who knows, maybe we will make room for more. 

OMG! Lucky St. Patrick's Day Sticker

St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner.  Don't forget to wear green and send a 'Lucky' Sticker on St. Patrick's Day from the OMG! by Big Top Ballet Stickers App .

Why do you wear green? It's to make yourself invisible to the fairies and leprechauns and avoid a pinch for not participating like good Irish folk.

OMG! It's Valentine's Day!

February is our absolute favourite month for love. Of course you want to celebrate love year round. It is an especially auspicious time of year.  If you don't know,  it is legend that in the month of February every year, cupid's arrow is set a flight to strike one's heart at the same time as their perfect match.  

And so we have added 6 new stickers to OMG! by Big Top Ballet to celebrate sweet cupid and his arrow.
