The Great Marmoset Tree Cutting Expedition of 2014

Another year's come to an end and it's an understatement to say that a lot has changed.  Our personal and professional families have grown, we've had the honor of collaborating with so many great people and projects, and we're extremely excited to venture into the great unknown of what lays ahead.

Taking this all in, we ventured out of the city and into the woods together in what's becoming our annual of tree-cutting expedition. There may or may not have been whiskey involved.

Music Licensing Coordinator, David Katz and Digital Team dude, Shane Geiger took the first turn sawing into the gigantic monster of a tree.

Developer + Designer, Ryan Rebo and Artist Relations, Steve Schroeder soon took the helm and endured the arduous task at hand.

When the going got tough, Music Supervisors Kat Olsen and Nicole Wilson persevered.

Catching Co-Founders Brian Hall and Ryan Wines in a "natural" moment as they effortlessly tackle the behemoth.

And Brian found new methods of taking a tree down.

All smiles from the gang with the triumph of finding our favorite tree. This could only result in...

...a dance party.

Developer + Designer, Ryan Rebo and Producer, Tim Shrout found a quiet moment as they bring our prized tree out of the woods.
