Rain + Crossboarders = <3

Rain has merged with Crossborders, a New York-based digital content creation company. We couldn’t be more thrilled about this stellar combination of software & interactive development capabilities, video production, digital branding and social media strategy. The newly combined, 75-person agency will operate under Rain’s company name and the two offices will now be known as Rain UT and Rain NY. Crossborders will remain as the documentary film and television segment of the company and continue to produce great feature-length films. Click here to read the press release.

Crossborders and Rain already have a recent history of close collaboration that has produced outstanding results. Of particular note, Crossborders partnered with Rain to launch the critically and commercially acclaimed mobile game, The Adventures of Timmy: Run Kitty Run, in October, 2011. Timmy has been downloaded more than 500,000 times worldwide. The game was the recipient of the 2012 Webby Award for “People’s Voice in Handheld Games” and a Mobile Favourite Website Award (FWA). Additionally, Timmy was nominated for a Mashable Award as “Best Mobile App of The Year”. The game has also been marketed by DoSomething.org as a component of its Stand Up To Bullying campaign.

Additionally, we created a Facebook page that promotes dialogue, helping the residents of the five boroughs of New York City discuss the value of having Walmart in their communities.
