Three teenage friends, in the ultimate act of independence, decide to spend their summer building a house in the woods and living off the land.

Utilizing the film’s hand-drawn aesthetic and witty humor, WDG created a theatrical Tumblr site for ‘The Kings of Summer’ showcasing images, animated GIFs and custom illustrations.

Yes, the "Site of the Month" goes to Watson DG for their fantastic work. It's the first time that a Tumblr site wins a Site of the Month award. Congratulations!

    WDG set out to create a Tumblr page as unique as the movie itself, highlighting the naturalistic tone, familiar comedic roster, and breakout performances. Focusing on the central themes and imagery of the film, the site combines a hand-drawn aesthetic and a singular layout, delivering a humorous, easily navigated blog experience.

  • About the Movie

    Premiering to rave reviews at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, THE KINGS OF SUMMER is a unique coming-of-age comedy about three teenage friends – Joe (Nick Robinson), Patrick (Gabriel Basso) and the eccentric and unpredictable Biaggio (Moises Arias) - who, in the ultimate act of independence, decide to spend their summer building a house in the woods and living off the land. Free from their parents’ rules, their idyllic summer quickly becomes a test of friendship as each boy learns to appreciate the fact that family - whether it is the one you’re born into or the one you create – is something you can't run away from.
