Kristin Brenneman Eno, Founder/Director

Contact Little Creatures

In 2001, while teaching art to five and six-year-old students who repeated television dialogue verbatim as they told and illustrated imaginative stories, and after learning from her future husband Sean Eno how to shoot and edit video, Kristin B. Eno decided to explore the potential of using digital video to support and enhance children’s original stories. Her research (Ed. M., Columbia Teachers College, 2004) and practice (Digital Story Workshop, 2004-2008) led her to see that video making for and by young children (non-actors) was a rich and untapped resource for education and entertainment, and that children even as young as four were ready to participate in the making of their own media. Over the past twelve years, Kristin has offered twenty-five video making opportunities to pre-K through third grade students in NYC public schools, funded by state and local arts budgets and grants, and she has independently directed and produced six video projects outside of schools. Through this work, Kristin has developed an acute understanding of the powerful potential of the video medium as a learning tool, capable of supporting and enhancing young children’s unique stories and imaginative play, which are in turn keys that unlock problem-solving and brain development, in early childhood as well as later in life. After much intense video work within the education sector, in 2008 Kristin made the decision to focus on raising the quality of her videos, and to distribute them widely, which resulted in the establishment of the Little Creatures film company.
