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*

and

Onur Turkels

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!

It has been a wonderful magical year filled with wonderful magical things.

After four long years, my experimental Charles Manson film, OLD MAN has been released online! Covered by big media names like VICE, The Atlantic, my blog and Filmmaker Magazine, OLD MAN has been featured at over 100 film festivals and continues to play today! Go watch it again and make it even more controversial because it is not enough already.

HALLWAY has been released online, too! You should watch it, again, too. And then share it. Again. She is drenched and waiting for your eyes to get even more drenched.

Most recently I was honored when asked by Starburns Industries to produce, animate and direct a segment for VICELAND TV’s New Series Party Legends. It will air on the network in February.

I am producing more films both live action, animated, everything in between and more…

and hey, I figured, psh, I have enough time, let me produce a quick short!!! And hey, I am just gonna post it online.

ENJOY.

I love you all.

EAT COOKIES.

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!

XOXOX

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.

Animation-Heading-best

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.

Enjoy!
