Love, the Gnomies
Oh My Gnome!
The Gnomies were recently featured in Subaru's Drive magazine... a fun interview with Dr. Steve about how making Gnomies pushed his creative edge.
And, there's a great shot of Dr. Steve in the field filming (if you look closely, you can spot how he's holding Emu on a stick). And yes, he does drive a Subaru!

Nature plays a starring role in Gnomies World!
That's because nature heals.
“The studies are clear about the benefits of being in natural settings, with practices like forest bathing, earthing, green spaces and being outside," said Dr. Steve Koc, creator.
"From a healing perspective, the benefits of exposure to nature are pretty much the same as the benefits from laughter itself: stimulation of the immune system, reduction of stress, and relaxation of the muscles.”
Gnomies World brings real-life, non-commercialized, actual nature to the big screen. It was filmed on 12 private acres in the Oregon forests south of Portland.
“I spent a lot of times outdoors,” said Koc. “I spent hours wandering amongst the trees, moss and mud with a camera.”
Reviewing the footage, Koc was surprised to see unexpected nature show up: “Out of nowhere, a frog jumped onto one of the Gnomie’s heads, and a curious hummingbird dropped by. A bumblebee showed up unexpectedly. Nature is always interacting with us in wonderful ways.”

"Plain and simple, laughter heals,” said Dr. Steve Koc, creator of the humorous animated film Gnomies World, just out with Beyond Words Films.
“The mind and body let go of stress when we laugh—and this true for both children and adults," he said.
“The feel-good chemicals of the brain, endorphins and the like, are enhanced while at the same time the stress-related chemicals such as cortisol and epinephrine are reduced," Koc explained. "
It’s well-documented that the immune system also gets a healthy boost as a result of laughing, and our breath and circulation are affected in positive ways.”
So go ahead.... laugh. It's good for you!

Parents and grandparents are always seeking ways to help kids wind down.
Yet so often the common choice: putting on a movie—actually stresses kids out more.
That’s because most mainstream children’s media is over stimulating. Instead of relaxing children, it winds them up, makes them anxious or zoned them out—the exact opposite of what’s intended.
In choosing children’s media that will positively benefit kids, three elements are key according to Dr. Steve Koc, an Oregon chiropractor who’s worked for 40 years helping clients of all ages relax, de-stress and heal.
“Nature, music and humor are powerful healers,” said Koc. “Each element by itself is a natural de-stressor that creates physiological and hormonal shifts in the body. When you combine them together, you have a powerful agent for relaxation and stress relief.”
Ready to get relaxed—instead of revved up?

“There’s no violence in Gnomies World,” said Dr. Steve Koc, creator of the new animated film just out with Beyond Words.
“The Gnomies are kind and respectful to each other," he explained. "Nowadays, popular children’s shows are loaded with sarcasm, witty put downs, and attitudes of “me, me, me. This negativity disguised as humor trains children and adults to think and act in ways that lead to negative outcomes.”
“There is an intention to create peace and harmony through this film," said Koc. "There is an intention to leave the audience in a state of higher vibration or attunement. There is an intention to uplift those who watch it."
“What we watch and listen to feeds our thoughts and feelings. When we focus on positivity, we reap the benefits in physical and emotional health,” he noted.
