A Little Personal Update

Figured I'd let you AGDN readers on this thing that happened to me today. In 2019, I asked you all if you would want to see a feature-length American Girl stopmotion intended for teenagers and young adults. You all resoundingly said yes, and thus, my Sophie Award-winning stopmotion Rebelle was born. Once I posted the stopmotion, however, I didn't feel done with it yet, and I developed the concept further in hopes of it becoming a real movie.


Today, after nearly five years of work, a development producer offered to help me with the next steps of making Rebelle a real movie. At first, I didn’t believe it. Throughout this entire journey, the words I have heard the most, more than any other, were “no” and “unfortunately”. I was so used to rejection that I expected it, and part of me worried that this long-held dream would never come true. But today, this miracle happened, and without your support, it wouldn’t have.


So thank you all for supporting me and my world, especially those who have been supporting it all since the original stopmotion. I am so proud of what Rebelle has become, and I cannot wait to reintroduce Erika, Kierra and the Revolution to the world when the movie finally comes out.


Thank you all, best blog readers in the world!

OMG CONGRATS SYDNEY!!! :D I remember watching Rebelle when it came out and thinking how incredibly impressive it was that someone, you, was able to create a whole feature-length film with great characters and story with American Girl dolls and a little bit of stopmotion magic. I'm so so incredibly happy at how far you've come, and even more so that your dreams of making Rebelle the movie it was always meant to be a reality! Good luck on the pre-prod, production, post-prod, and everything between and after the release. You'll do great and you'll continue to have our support through this remarkable journey. <3

Wow, Sydney, this news is absolutely amazing! I have been following the production of Rebelle since it premiered on AGtube in 2020, and I must say that I'm thrilled to see you achieve this new milestone in your career.

It serves as a reminder to all girls out there that if they have a dream, they can definitely make it happen. Your straight determination throughout this entire (Dare I say, 5 year process? Wow.) is so inspiring and impressive. I seriously admire your ability to see something you want, set your sights straight on it, and go for…
