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.

The film was published in the NY TIMES…

Well, I’m honored to win another award, they don’t come easy!  Mexico has a great film tradition and I am happy to share a film that celebrates the arts and crafts of a local region which I believe Mexicans can appreciate as the folk arts are alive and thriving in Mexico.

Charleston Intl Film Fest

Appalachian Dreams will have its South Carolina premiere at the 2010 Charleston Intl Film Fest.

It’ll be interesting to see what native South Carolinians think of an animated clogging film.
