This year is going to be very busy for me at the Ottawa International Animation Fest. My films “Totem”, “Yield”, and “Goodbye Rabbit, Hop Hop” have made it into the official selections, which is a bit absurd - but more than welcomed <:’) . “Rat Trap” will be screening with the rest of the LNWC Ghost Stories, in a special ghost themed screening as well!

And, I’ll be slaving away for the majority of the fest creating a short animation with a group of close friends. A kind of live, harass-able, installation piece.

So, I hope i’ll see some nice animation faces at the fest~

To each their own, but I always have something to listen to while making things. Some people say it changes the outcome of what your making, but to distinguish it as being negative is foolish. Its very arbitrary, whatever helps you during the creative process, and to be more prolific, should be embraced for your own health.

The very minimal amount of planning that went into “Goodbye Rabbit, Hop Hop”

My good great friend Nik Nerburn is asking for help, to dive deep into the shadows cast from Paul Bunyan. As a figure that has been taught to children throughout America, and stands erect throughout the cities of the Midwest, Nik’s film will question this giant’s relevance - and its effects on American societies. Lets help him out!
