Wow. Welp.  I just got awarded a grant from the wonderful Rooftop Films, thank you! I will be making a short doc about my mother, Susan Frost and what she does for a living. She’s an ocularist, she makes artificial eyes, meaning she hand sculpts, paints and molds the eye for her patients. It’s intimate. It’s emotional and she literally changes the patients life. I cannot wait to make this film and am thankful my mom is down to make it as well! Thank goodness for artists as parents! YAY!

So Giphy commissioned me to make a super short short film for their first ever Film Festival! So cool! So honored. Thank you Giphy! I decided to buy some mini lenses for my iphone and make a mini film with myself and this actor aka Jonathan. It was a lot of fun and we Twinned very hard. The film is called Hi Twin and is 27 seconds long.  I would like it to premiere at a film festival somewhere…do they make tiny film fests? Who knows! Contact me for any inquiries and checkout my Giphy page for some gifs from the mini film!

Cool write-up about the fest HERE

HAAAAAAAANDS!!! That’s right, she is still hands-ing to play at film festivals…my signal film I made for the amazing film festival CUCALORUS just won a damn Honorable Mention award at Indie Memphis!! I am so sad to have missed this one. NOT to mention my new film, Funeral was also playing there. Wow. Just wow. Thank you Jury members, thank you staff, programmers, volunteers, filmmakers, film-goers, friends, Memphis, Cucalorus, Matt Davies, Jaime Horrigan at Studio Unkown, Aaron Hillis who both produced Hands and was also the dead corpse in Funeral, and Dan Brawley the Chief Instigating Officer of the Cucalorus Festival.

Please email me with any film festival playing inquiry!



I was chosen to be apart of the Imagine Science Competition 2018
Six scientists and six filmmakers have been chosen to create genre-bending works during the 11th Imagine Science Film Festival in NYC this fall.

I was paired with Scientist/Engineer Tracy Fanara, who to me is a real life superhero and is currently battling the Red Tide issue in Florida. If you don’t know what that is please read about it. It’s frightening and, well here: “…this bloom, like many HABs, is caused by microscopic algae that produce toxins that kill fish and make shellfish dangerous to eat. The toxins may also make the surrounding air difficult to breathe. As the name suggests, the bloom of algae often turns the water red.”

I was inspired by what Tracy did for a living and also because of the timing, I just read this article in the NYT.  I was also invited to the filming of Josh Fox’s new film about Climate Change and the Environment, etc. We were prompted to make a film in a week with the theme of: SURVIVAL. We were in Brooklyn. I thought, what could we make? Ah. A film, a portrait film about the pollution in Brooklyn but used as a metaphor for something bigger, something I myself could attempt to articulate in a week using Brooklyn, using my amazing cinematographer and Sundance Award Winning Short Film, Hairwolf badass lady, Charlotte Hornsby, using movement by Guggenheim grant recipient Rosane Chameki and Sleep No More dancer Brian Castillo and sounds that would scare the bajeezus out of you that are inspired by the environment made by my friend Johnny Woods, and my RISD roommate who production designed the film, Nicole Heraty…Producer. Sound. Mixing. PA’s,and so on with my amazing crew.

Tracy was an integral role, analyzing our locations, researched what happened and why they were polluted. We talked about how people would react if they ingested carcinogenic or if they had ingested fracked liquids or if they realized you lived outside a warehouse with a literal Nuclear Bomb waiting to happen and so on. It was certainly a wonderful collaborative journey with a terrific team. I feel so thankful for the support! We decided to call the film EXTREMOPHILES.

Extromophiles are organisms that exist when nothing else can survive. The earth finds a way to balance change, but will humans be able to adapt to the change which they are creating?

We would absolutely love to share this film with you, world. If you are interested in a genre bending hybrid film. An Horror-Activist-Scifi-Short-Doc with the themes of Pollution, Climate Change, Politics and more…


THANKS! Symbiosis Grant! Thank you Simons Foundation Grant! Thank you to all of the other Filmmakers and Scientists that competed during the week! XO

Old Man won first prize Audience Awards in the Experimental Shorts Film Festival. So cool. Thank you festival for picking this film. Thank you to the team. Thank you, Old Man for lending your ghostly voice and to Marlin Marynick for the support and for your voice.


go watch the film on the Criterion Channel and see me get interviewed and talk about my influences in life and beyond!

Thank you Sidewalk Film Festival for awarding our new short FUNERAL best animated short film! Literally I was speechless, in that I should have probably prepared a speech and thanked animation, ghosts, animation, the trophy and I think a few other things…and left. THANK YOU. Thank you to my amazing team, post and pre..thank you, and of course, thank you animation.

Until next time.


Shout out to Jonathan Federico, Natasha Soto-Albors, Jennifer Prediger, Jarret Kerr, Aaron Hillis, my animation team: Jonathan Seligson, Sarah Miskoff and Nico Teitel… and to my amazing exec producers Adnaan Muslim, Rene Federico, Nightspark Pictures, Elizabeth Krajewski…

Hey! OLD MAN is playing before Dennis Hopper’s Directorial debut, EASY RIDER on the Criterion Channel, Filmstruck. Check it out when you have the chance. I am unbelievably honored, speechless and am in utter aw over this. Thank you to the Criterion crew for having me over, letting me into their film closet, letting me speak about my influences such as Cher, my mom and everything in between and for just supporting the arts. Onward to more films and art making! Thank you to my amazing, supportive crew, most who went to RISD with me: Jonathan Seligson, Michaeala Olsen, Melissa Loyola, Liesje Kraai, Isam Prado, Chris Barret for introducing me to the right people and finally Marlin Marynick who was very close with Manson and who wrote Manson Now. Thank you for letting me into you wonderful life.

Watch my hilarious inspiration list here

When you go to the Criterion Channel I host a directors intro about the film, my life and a ton of other information!

Well. This happened. It’s been like a surreal dream…


The film I produced with an amazing team in 2012 narrated by the one and only, recently passed, Charles Manson, OLD MAN will be distributed by the infamous Criterion Channel’s FilmStruck. It will play before Dennis Hopper’s feature debut, Easy Rider. It is a rather perfect pairing.

1969 saw the release of Dennis Hopper’s Easy Rider and the media circus ignited by the Manson murders, two seismic cultural events that cast a shadow on the freewheeling good vibes of the hippie era. This program brings together two films that capture the spirit of that chaotic year. In the 2012 experimental documentary Old Man, Brooklyn-based artist Leah Shore combines eye-popping animation with never-before-heard phone calls that Charles Manson made from jail to the infamous cult leader and Canadian author Marlin Marlin M. Marynick. In his directorial debut, Hopper created one of the great American road movies, a counterculture sensation that mixed New Wave-inspired aesthetics, a bold rock soundtrack, and star-making performances by Peter Fonda and Jack Nicholson.
*Premiering on the Chanel this month                                                                                   
*make sure to watch out for a lil interview by yours truly!

Thank you to my crew: Jonathan Seligson Marlin M. Marynick Michaela OlsenLiesje KraaiMel Loyola AgostoIsam S.

I just found this sweet article and I love it. I think it is rather appropriate because it is amazing and I was lucky enough to see Peaches perform here in NY this weekend. She was amazing as always. Luckily she is roommate-less now, thank goodness. 🙂


We produced my favorite episode this week of How It Went Down featuring Sam Smith. The animation reflects the background and what he is talking about: breakups, heartbreak, choirs, music and flowers! I absolutely loved working on this and want to explore more visual pieces like this. If you didn’t know, we produce an episode a WEEK! YES, a week! I know, we are fab. It could not be done without the fabulously talented Billboard crew, THANK YOU!

I had the pleasure of Directing Bella Thorne and Prince Fox for Billboard and then animating on top of the edited piece. Assisting animation by Peter Gulsvig and produced by Jessica Rovniak for the series How It Went Down. I have been working on the entire series by the way, so you should probably watch all the episodes*

I had the pleasure of directing Bella Thorne and Prince Fox at Billboard for a segment. Heck I even got to quickly design the background for them. There might be a flamingo somewhere? They were super sweet, hilarious and great to work with annnnd fashionably appareled. We worked well together and boy do they have a story for you! STAY TUNED. XO

I animated the episode of JD SAMSON’s BIG DAY OUT for the show PARTY STORY on VICELAND.  CHECK SOME OF THE ANIMATION OUT BELOW…they even made gifs! WHAT A GIFT! SHARE IT.


OH NEAT-O. The episode I did for VICELAND‘s Party Legends, produced by Starburns Industries, Inc., is online on Xfinity / On Demand / your paid cable network and you should watch it NOW.

My annual holiday film, COOKIES had its festival premiere at the prestigious ROOFTOP FILM FESTIVAL! It was a fabulous night and the seats were packed, so packed that it was sold out! I was lucky enough to have both Sarah Miskoff and Jonathan Seligson with me, my animators from the film. It was a glorious night, with amazing programming, popcorn and a ton of poop jokes. Good times. I hope the film plays more. People seemed to LOL a lot. There was so much LOL-ing, that I swear I heard a ton of farts, but that is okay because COOKIES is probably the best film to fart to. She is the best film to fart to. QUOTE ME.



Just kidding. I am however in the beginning of this trailer and had completely forgotten I had done this in 2014 for Greencard Pictures in my pjs in about one take in my own grownup room on the skype. I AM FAMOUS NOW, RIGHT?! RIGHT!!!?!?! Wheres my Rolodex?
