Olive Us is a weekly video series created by Ben and Gabrielle Blair and featuring their six kids: Ralph, Maude, Olive, Oscar, Betty and Flora June. You can find their bios below.
The series is made up of short episodes (typically 2 to 5 minutes) and showcases values we care about like working hard, being kind, helping each other, being creative, problem solving and staying positive even when frustrating things happen.
Our family relationships aren’t perfect, but we hope by modeling positive examples in the videos that it will help us practice better relationships in real life.
We teamed with Tiger in a Jar, makers of the prettiest videos on the web, to develop, film and edit the series. They’ve been amazing to work with. We’re selfish and want to keep them all to ourselves so we hope you don’t contact them. (Just kidding.)
We’ve also been working with Geoff Groberg, who composed and produced the music for the theme song. We can’t wait to see what he comes up with for future episodes.
RALPH is 14 years old. He is obsessed with all things film and wants to travel the world.
