Let's Make Some Awesome

Seasons 1 and 2 of Gortimer Gibbon's Life on Normal Street currently streaming on Amazon Prime

Whether you're a kid or grown-up kid, we invite you to binge on Season 1 and 2 of this great Amazon Original Series, about three friends navigating adolescence on Normal Street, a "seemingly ordinary suburb with hints of something magical just below the surface."  The show won the 2016 WGA award for Best Children's Script, after securing four of the five nominations in the category. It was also nominated in 2016 for Best Directorial Achievement in Children's Programs by the DGA, and won the 2016 Humanitas Prize.

Team Spaceman was proud to work on this one-of-a-kind show, creating ten animated shorts for the series. Check out a trailer for season 2 below. (Animation by Paper Brain and Team Spaceman can be seen in the trailer.)

Tons of fun at the 2016 Tongies, where Team Spaceman was nominated in the "Best Animation" category for our 90 second crayon-style animated short, "Blaze and Crayon Adventure," promoting the Nick Jr. series Blaze and the Monster Machines. The animation received the top award last summer in Tongal's Blaze project, sponsored by Nickelodeon. 

A hearty congratulations to Sam Lawlace, who won the Best Animation category this year with his excellent LEGO stop-motion.  We're big fans of Sam's work.  Also want to give special shout-outs to Irvin Anderson for his well-deserved "Ideator of the Year" award, and Julie Lee for her induction into Tongal's Hall of Fame. We got to sit next to Irvin and Julia this year, and they're Tongal's definitive power couple!

This was the third annual Tongies, and Team Spaceman has had the great privilege of attending all three years. It's been great getting to meet all the talented creators in the Tongal community.
