A short animated spot I did for the truthLIVE tour; it was created as one of the many VJ "bumpers" between sets. Most of puppets and set props in this piece (the squid, the derpy fish, the kelp, water effects, waves, striped straws, etc) were handmade and then digitized.

Black Box - An adaptation of a short story by Joyce Carol Oates dealing with the issues of trauma and memory. Created as my senior degree project at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.

"..the hauntingly elliptical, surreal/ dreamlike film-- "Black Box" is a sort of poetic abstract of the story which is in itself quite succinct..."

The Original Impulse - Animated by Monica Garrison and scored by Andrei Pohorelsky, the new single sentence animation for Lynne Tillman's "The Original Impulse" may haunt your dreams.

The sentence reads: "She roared here and soared there, dwarfed by three massive white columns as she and her best college friend mugged before a filmless camera."

The story can be found in full in Electric Literature No. 5. Subscribe at http://electricliterature.com/electric-literature-store.php

Single Sentence Animations are creative collaborations. The writer selects a favorite sentence from his or her work and the animator creates a short film in response.

Se7en Title Sequence - An assignment where we were asked to recreate the animated title sequence of an existing movie. The original title sequence from Se7en is set from the perspective of the serial killer. I thought it would be interesting to try it from the perspective of the opposing character, the older detective played by Morgan Freeman

Liquid - Final project in sound class geared toward animation students. We were asked to rework an old assignment with new footage and sound. I chose to work with an earlier style piece that was based on “Toca me” by Dvein.

The sound was recorded on a home made contact microphone, it helped to pick up the deeper tones as I used a classical bass bow on a large enameled pan.
