DAMIEN ECKHARDT-JACOBI & VINCENT BOVA: GLOVE AND BOOTS
Based out of Brooklyn NY, Damien Eckhardt-Jacobi and Vincent Bova are the humans behind the YouTube puppet series, Glove and Boots. The pair are the creators top to bottom – writers, editors, puppet builders, performers, and directors of the volatile but kid-friendly vlog. Their puppet characters, Mario and Fafa the Groundhog (with the help of a cast of 50+ additional puppets), have won a Shorty Award for best Video Blogger, a Pixie Award for Visual Effects, and a Webby Nomination for Best Writing. Glove and Boots has produced branded content for Google/YouTube, Hewlett Packard, IFC, and NFL Films. Their YouTube channel has over 300,000 subscribers with 52 million+ total views. Glove and Boots is in the process of developing a long form series as well as other digital content with Bento Box Entertainment.
