Happy Holidays

This is an animated video I did as part of CNN’s 12 days of Christmas.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.  For some reason, animation and holidays go together pretty naturally.  Maybe because there are not too many partridges in pear trees in the real world.  My colleague Bruno DeGazio did the music and we both sang (very badly) in his recording studio.

Kickin’ Mule

Kickin’ Mule will have its East Coast Premiere at the River Run International Film Festival

This is a premiere film festival in the southeastern US and I am excited to be part of the festival since it is a perfect venue for my film as it is based conceptually in this region.

Kickin’ Mule had its premiere at the St. Louis International Film Festival at the Tivoli Theatre in November.

This is a shot from an animation film that celebrates the old time music of Frank Lee and Adam Tanner.  I was inspired by cutout silhouette animation and the quilt tradition of the Appalachian region.  Frank and Adam have several other traditional fiddle and banjo tunes that I would like to further explore with other animation methods, traditional and modern.
