Yup! You heard it! The famous COOKIES will screen at the famous Rooftop Films this summer July 7th a part of the Dark Toons screening.

They are also incredibly supportive of filmmakers and I am very thankful for that. Thank you Rooftop Films! Thanks to my crew, Sarah Miskoff, Fritz Myers and Jonathan Seligson. See you soon!

Comedy Central hired me to produce two pieces for their Saturday Cartoon(ish) series. Here is part one. Someone please hire me to make songs. ❤
I am super proud to announce that I am a judge in the short animated block at the SXSW Film Festival 2016!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have been screening my films in the experimental, narrative and animated shorts categories at SXSW since my 2009 undergrad RISD thesis film MEATWAFFLE, so I am totally up for this challenge!! TO AUSTIN I GO!!
Judge I am!
I was hired by one of my favorite production companies (1st Ave Machine) to Lead Animate on a very interesting Budweiser commercial. At first it was just a hand drawn commercial, but then the client wanted it actually HAND drawn on actual napkins. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.
I then spent the next 2-3 weeks producing and planning a very complicated hand drawn animation that would eventually go onto napkins and then stop motioned on top of that! HOW COOL. I was even asked to help with the stop motion (swoon), but I had to go jury at the Ottawa International Animation Film Festival (swoon).
We also had a very talented 3D animator on hand that worked with me. It was again, very complicated. I wish we had documented it!
The process went something like this:
-2D animation on FLASH
-the 2D then was transferred onto 3D maya software. It was then composited. We stared at it to make sure it looked about right. OH. I also had to make tiny squares and frame each bit to make sure each square was on the napkin and was animated correctly. I hope that makes sense.
-After that and after the animation was approved by the client, we printed the frames via a printer frame by frame.
-We then traced each frame onto individual cocktail napkins with specific markers.
-At some point I had realized, oh gee, I cannot do this on my own, I should probably have help, and luckily I did! Thank goodness, otherwise it would not have gotten done!! Good thing the Director, Producer and team were amazing. Shout out to the amaaaazing stop motion animator. He reaaally really knew his stuff.
I hope to make more fine art oriented stuff! Here’s to you, 2016!

Thank you The Atlantic for choosing OLD MAN to showcase. It is seriously appreciated. Thank you to the crew of Old Man. You deserve everything for helping me make this beast. Thank you to all the supporters for supporting me when I was sitting in a room alone editing to Manson’s voice for 3+ months in my underpants. Thank you to Marlin for giving me an abundance of audio and befriending me. Thank you Carl D’Andre for supporting the film. Thank you mom for birthing me. Thank you animation world. Thank you film world. Thank you thank you THANK YOU.
I was fortunate to get hired by Above Average to animate a small series for Someecards. You should watch it. It is from the brilliant mind of Anna Rubanova. She is the hilarious.
I hope to work more in comedy. It is mostly funny. I hope to make it funnier. FINGERS CROSSED.
Enjoy and share this with everyone especially people in your workplace.
What do I do when I get an awkward interview for 45 minutes and am not asked anything really? I eat an entire rotisserie chicken without acknowledging the fact that I have a rotisserie chicken and am eating it on stage during a q & a and while talking about working with Vice WHILE cracking a Khan joke.
Basically. It was the most fun I have ever had…ever.
Thank you Ottawa International Animation Film Festival for allowing me to eat chicken on stage and jury the most beautiful films! It was an honor.
Till next year!
Ps. TAMMY LIVES
Acclaimed filmmaker and animator Leah Shore is officially releasing her short film HALLWAY after a wildly successful international film festival run. This is Leah’s first entirely live action film of which she is also the screenwriter.
HALLWAY is a short genderfuck black-light film shot entirely a secret sex club in Brooklyn. The film tells a story about love wherein a queer couple unleash upon each other a drug-induced, existential barrage of delusion and broken dreams.
Leah is incredibly grateful to everyone who worked on and supported this film. Especially her cast and crew. Thank you!
It’s pretty and insane. Check it out. And then watch again. And then share it.
“OH SHIT.” -Leah’s Mom
I made yet another RAD Teen Wolf birthday card! This one is for Mr. Dylan O’Brien. He is cool. He also loves to eat fries, ride his Jeep and be a goof on the show! Happy day of birth O’Brien!
I had the privilege to make another card for Teen Wolf and this one is for Arden Cho! Happy birthday! I decided to experiment with some watercolor/hand drawn techniques with this one and am pretty pleased. Enjoy!
Super proud, amped, honored, mapled, poutined to have Larry Johnson screening at my favorite animation fest!
Also, this is hilarious to me for some reason (my name amongst companies…did I get into something strange?):
I am shooting my next live action film, WHALE LOOPS, in October, so I figured that in the meantime, I should make an animated short film. In a month (or two).
So I will be animating a short film this month (July).
Wish me luck.
I will be hand drawing it. With my hands. On real paper.
So glad to be included at this festival. It is one of my favorite fests and I try to attend it every year!
*I will also be doing a live drawing thing with a comedian. You should come. I will most likely draw a ton of boobs.
Animation nerds and nerds alike! Apparently my film, BOOBatary is playing at ANNECY apart of the Spike and Mike’s Festival of Animation! RAD. GO WATCH IT IF YOURE IN FRANCE BECAUSE I WON’T BE IN LE FRANCE frown emoticon FRANCE FRANCE FRANCE FRANCE FRANCE FRANCE. heart emoticon
So honored to be speaking after Leah Meyerhoff‘s screening of I Believe in Unicorns – theatrical release at the IFC Center on June 1st (both 7pm and 9pm screenings) with the talented animator/artist/filmmaker Signe Baumane. We will be discussing things from film to animation and lady stuff and unicorns. BE THERE. IT IS A GREAT FILM!!
WATCH THIS CARD I MADE FOR MTV/LINDEN ASHBY/TEEN WOLF 100 TIMES.
Shout out to my animation assistant, Chrissy Fellmeth! She is the best!
HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY TO ALL AND TO ALL A WEREWOLF FREE TIME.
I did this for VICE! I did it real fast. I learned a lot. Like, who IS Grandmama and Larry Johnson? What DID Converse shoes look like in the 90s especially if I made a dorky STNG reference about it? Well. I guess you will have to see it yourself. Enjoy. Did I mention that I made this really fast? I wish people gave me more time, for Grandmama’s sake!
I am honored to be a jury member for this years Ottawa International Animation Festival 2015!! I am so excited! Thank you, OIAF! 🙂 See you soon, poutine, beaver tails, maple everything, and animation nerds!
I just finished producing, animating and directing a segment for EW digital for the show Justified. It was really fun to make! I wish I had more time to finesse things, luckily I had the talented Chrissy Fellmeth to help animate for me and make this piece even more badass within the tight turn around. Thanks Chrissy! YOU ROCK.
I particularly enjoyed making the watercolor background and wish I had more time to make everything watercolor but that would have taken another few weeks to complete!
Made in 3 weeks.
