    Synopsis

    Small Bursts of Imagination tells a story about the level of deep personal investment and sacrifice that goes into creating companies. It’s a journey that anyone who has been told “you can’t do that” can relate to. In 2007, Lance Priebe sold the virtual world he created with his co-founders to Disney for $350 million. He built a fun social game for hundreds of millions of kids around the world to play. He'd also created jobs for hundreds of workers in Kelowna, BC in the process. But replicating the success of Club Penguin was harder — and more costly — than anyone could have imagined. In this story, we learn about how Lance and his new studio Hyper Hippo Games almost fell apart, and what they did to create success once again.
