We would like to congratulate our friends at Fable Studio for the well-deserved Emmy for Wolves in the Walls! Fable Studio’s co-founder Edward Saatchi says:
“This is the first Virtual Being project to receive an Emmy but it won’t be the last… Eventually a Virtual Being will win an Oscar for their performance in a live-action movie.“
