After eight years and an unfortunately failed attempt to raise funding, Washington DC-based “Pancake Mountain” will cease production. The independent children’s show is the brainchild of Scott Stuckey. It debuted in 2004 and is perhaps best known for the video “Vowel Movement” by The Evens, featuring Ian MacKaye and Amy Farina.
From the press release:
For eight fantastic years, we have had the unbelievable fortune to work with the most talented, creative and fun people in the industry. From our very first guest, the late Vic Chesnutt, to the young superstar-to-be Katy Perry, we have enjoyed creating fantastic experiences with the best of the best. Who could forget Arcade Fire, Jenny Lewis, Eddie Vedder, The White Stripes, Kings of Leon and 72 other musical acts!! Each and every one of them has our undying gratitude for their involvement in our little show that wasn’t. And their playful, creative spirits will be a part of us forever. There are far too many to list by name, but hopefully they know how much they all meant to us. We can’t thank them enough for their dedication, imagination and time.
