The studio worked in partnership with agency Porter Novelli on the project. The agency, says FlickerLab founder/creative director Harold Moss, conceptualized the story line and wrote the dialogue, but relied on the animation studio to bring their characters to life. 

FlickerLab used Adobe After Effects, Photoshop, and Illustrator; Macromedia Flash and Dreamweaver; Panic Transmit file transfer software; Apple Final Cut Pro; PowerMac G5s; and Intel-based iMacs on the project. Apple and Dell displays were used for monitoring along with Wacom Intuos and Cintiq tablets.   

In addition to Moss, the FlickerLab team included executive producers Tammy Walters and Karen Stewart; senior producer Melissa Johnson; animation director Nikolay Nachev; designers David Michael Friend, Scott Gursky, and Max Porter; storyboard artists Tom Conner and Nikolay Nachev; Flash Animators Nikolay Nachev (lead), Phil Lockerby, Nicholas Bertonazzi, Chris Siemasko, Tom Smolenski, Frank Digregorio, Anand Nunnally-Duncan and Simon Ampel; After Effects artist Brian Cox; and coordinator Scott Brewster. Freelance illustrator/character designer Kirsten Ulve was also involved in this project. 

Composer Alex Lasarenko of Tonal in NYC provided the underscore. Peter Buccellato of Sound Lounge, also in New York handled sound design and the final audio mix.
