'Enter the Animated World of Woodshed'

Launching Woodshed into the public realm for the first time, Kota Dosa Universe took over a gallery space in New York's East Village for an exhibition and celebration of artwork, anime & trading cards.

Screening the animated short 'Booster Packs' throughout the day, our audience quickly grew into a block party. Cast & crew came together for the grassroots event, travelling in from London, Oregon & Florida to join the NYC team.

Thank you to everyone who came and supported.
