Born in Baltimore, 2023

The Lunatics was screened at the Born in Baltimore festival. All the work was very strong this year, and several of the award winning films had intense, social justice themes that hit hard. The Lunatics brought up the end with some comic relief.

We are fortunate to have such a wonderful festival here.

Short Loops

I made a few short animated loops as warm-ups while we were traveling.

The first one was drawn on a train from Lisbon to Porto. It was very bumpy, so I had to just be loose and go with it.

I’m just keeping things moving.

New Works Baltimore

I’m happy to participate in this – I’ve attended shows here, and we are lucky to have this in Baltimore.

April 14 at 2640 Space, St. Paul St., Baltimore, MD.

I’m lifting this from the JHU Newsletter site:

New Works provided easy access to experimental work by Baltimore filmmakers that otherwise might be lost to the ether. Its mission to connect viewers to artists within the same community is a commendable one. A creative Friday evening detour, an experimental film screening is a great way to mix up one’s regular thought patterns and behavior with the consumption of work by people who are thinking outside of the box.

Unknown no. 2

I’m not sure how to classify this one, and also, I don’t think it’s finished. Part audio experiment, part experimental animation.

Sweaty Eyeballs 2022

The Lunatics entered the greater world at the 2022 edition of the Sweaty Eyeballs festival here in Baltimore. Always a big inspiration, this year’s festival did not disappoint! The Baltimore showcase was sold out, too.

Here on some pics from the night.

The Lunatics

Hey folks!

I just finished an animation called “The Lunatics.” I made a 13 minutes video showing how I made it, which can be viewed on Patreon. I hope you will consider joining me there!

I started this video in earnest on August 6 and finished on September 24. I completed over 100 takes in this one (not all of which are in the final edit). I’m very happy with how it turned out. Enjoy!
