Artists!

 

Our artists were made for each other - literally! Twins Rachel and Hannah Mangan create the heads of writing and animation that helm the West Patch and keep it on course! Rachel has a master's in screenwriting while Hannah has a bachelor's in animation, both with backgrounds in fine art and graphic design. With unmatched synergy and endless creative drive, no one is better fit for the task!

So how is the work divided? Both share the burden of background art and clean-up, as well as the broader strokes of world-building when it comes to adapting Padilly's work to the screen, but Rachel tackles the finer points of dialogue and story structure while Hannah creates the rough animation and composition upon which the final image is made! With this tandem of talent, Keith Publishing and the Padilly family both feel the West Patch is in good hands!

Production!

Keith Publishing Company, owned by Giles Keith, is renowned for its large collection of children-aimed properties! Having known Marguerite in her youth, it seemed a natural solution that the two should team up for the creation of this lovingly crafted children's series! Trusting the future of her mother's story to the company, Giles quickly decided it was a matter of utmost import to make sure the author's unpublished works not only saw the light of day, but did so in spectacular fashion! With a trove of unreleased stories, Marguerite was helpful in condensing the whistful tales into one riveting mini-series!

The head writer for The West Patch has a master's in screenwriting and a long-standing fondness for Padilly's previous work, a perfect fit for capturing the fanciful tone of the patch's paracosm! 

The head animator for The West Patch has a bachelor's in animation and has worked on several shows seen both online and on network television! Having grown up on the Padilly stories since a child, a special devotion will be put into making the animated series a loyal adaptation in both action and design!

The rest of the company's dedicated staff are making a quick transition from books to the screen! From graphic design to brainstorming in the boardroom, this tight-knit team is made up of people who love a good story before all else!

Keith Publishing Company invites you to explore the rest of the site, immerse yourself in the world, and remember that memory is only as good as the happy thoughts you keep.
