    "Laura combines technical skill and know-how with a keen sense of storytelling, why we chose her to begin with, and now, quite thankful we did!" We all have stories to tell. Maybe one story has germinated in your mind for weeks, months, or even years. It makes you feel thrilled and passionate. You jot down ideas when they strike, you work out how a character would act in a certain situation, you absorb all the world-building advice you can, and your browser boasts a suspiciously sordid search history (you swear it's all just research). Now you've written that script, you've polished that final draft of your book, and/or you've consistently updated that web comic for months. Great job! But after jumping the hurdles of creation (and admittedly stumbling over some of them), you want more eyes on your work. Wouldn't it be awesome to get potential customers as hyped about your story as you are? Here's where hand-drawn animation comes in. Everyone's seen one of those corporate explainer videos with floaty, sterile-looking motion graphics. They're fine for getting facts and simple concepts across, but they rarely- if ever- evoke a visceral reaction in anyone watching them. There's no "wow" factor. On the flip side, more hands-on 2D animation methods require characters to be authentic with their emotions, allowing viewers to feel a strong connection with them. Traditional animation has a soulful, hand-crafted look that can be tailored to fit your story and your audience. No generic assets here! Finally, a fluid, clean, emotional animation drawn frame by frame will show fans you care about craftsmanship. Just as the greatest animators have elevated the medium to the level of fine art, you've elevated your ideas to their own place of honor. Your audience will be excited to see their favorite characters jump to life on screen, even more vividly than you brought them to life in their heads. Then there will be newcomers intrigued by the action taking place. Old friends and fresh faces alike will all want to see more. If this seems like fantasy to you, hit the green button or the white button, and I'll meet you in the professor's old wardrobe.
