Block Party 2: “Run Away Melon”

Block Party is an original short created for Nick Jr’s digital platforms. It reimagines everyone’s favorite Nick Jr. characters as soft and stackable cubes! They must work together to solve problems as they embark on various adventures. For the second installment of the series, we chose to tackle a chase scene, as they cubes race to collect their picnic lunch as it rolls away. The pace and action is much faster than the first, and it was fun to take a more cinematic approach to the storytelling. Block Party 2 is the first of the series to premiere on Youtube, and to date it is the most viewed video on Nick Jr’s channel.
