Why is making important to you?
For us it’s in our DNA, we love to create! It’s one of our goals to inspire children and grown-ups alike to be inspired and to get out there and be creative! We believe that our own success is not defined by only selling a ton of our product but by having what we made have a positive influence on people and inspire others to make as well. Our hope is that this starts within our community and then continues to spread outward into many other business markets.
If you had an unlimited budget, what project would you make?
Documentary films, Beararms VR apps, animated films, plush toys, educational fun board games, a Beararms mascot suit for events and parties, a interactive cg animated photo booth for kids, trading cards, hats, shirts, posters, and more.
