We’re thrilled to share WIA mentee, Elizabeth Dix, and her sister, Gracie Dix’s, project, Knowhere, USA, has been selected as a Top Ten project for the THU and Sony Talent League! The worldwide challenge is open to creators between the ages of 18 and 35 who have an innovative idea that mixes more than one creative field.
Elizabeth, who was recently a mentee under the talented Creative Development Producer Mary Bredin, recently took to Instagram to express her excitement over being chosen.
The 2D animated show is geared toward children ages 6 through 11 and follows 11-year-old Mosi Morgan. Mosi and his family move from New York City to Knowhere — a secret, privately-owned town populated with global experts. Now, Mosi has to figure out how an ordinary kid like himself can ever fit in among so many extraordinary citizens.
The project is now up for public voting. The three most voted projects will get ten weeks of mentorships, funding plus a full ride to the next THU event for the grand winner.

Congratulations, Elizabeth and Gracie, and good luck!
