Our trip throughout the Amazon region, meeting people and documenting the children's games was an incredible experience. We shot over 50 hours of video footage, took loads of photographs and made contacts throughout the region.

Because one of the primary goals of this project is to share information, our job is to now organize all of the material we collected-the photos, the video, and the audio recordings- so that we can publish a book and produce a documentary.

We are interested in contacting "play friendly" people who can share similar experiences and who might assist us in marketing a documentary to Brazillian and American children via schools and community centers. Please contact us at
