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.

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 am proud to be directing a few things for Titmouse in the next few months. Keep an eye out, it should probably be sick or rad or badass or something something awesome awesome.

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. This is possibly one of my favorite NYC film festivals in that it is independent, non-profit and it screens on rooftops all summer! 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!
