Mailchimp Presents has debuted a new short-form series about the ups and downs (and sometimes-painful truths) of life as an entrepreneur or small business owner, All in a Day’s Work. The 12 episodes were created by Oscar- and Annie-nominated director Siqi Song (Sister), production company MAJORITY and animation studio BUCK in collaboration with London-based multiplatform publisher It’s Nice That.
All episodes are available to watch online free of charge and without ads now through Mailchimp Presents.
“The All in a Day’s Work series is a project I’m really excited about,” said Song. “As a startup filmmaker myself, every story in the series can resonate with me in some way. It was a pleasure to collaborate with It’s Nice That and Mailchimp to bring those stories to life.”
Song is an Oscar-nominated director and animator from China, currently based in California. Her films have been screened internationally at many film festivals, including Sundance, SXSW, Annecy, Ottawa and more. She was named a Film Independent Directing Fellow in 2018 and a BAFTA Los Angeles Newcomer in 2019. Song studied at California Institute of the Arts and China Central Academy of Fine Arts.
