Procyon Lotor

A copy of “Latin Names Explained” was in the decommissioning box at work, so brought it home and let it guide me to this scene. I had just finished this diorama when my daughter sent me photos of a raccoon looking for food (also where I work). What great timing!

My wonderful daughter Chloe made this for me a few years ago. I have it on a t-shirt! My college roommates used to say this to me all the time.

Supernova Silent Screen

Re-Generation 6th annual supernova digital animation festival.

I am very fortunate to have been included in the Supernova Silent Screen festival hosted by the Denver Digerati in, well, Denver. I made a specially cropped version of Brood X just for this festival. And then added music and some other scenes, which is the version I’ve linked to in this sentence.

Brood X will be shown on screen 6. From their website:

A brand new screen in 2021, the 15th and Champa location is a super high pixel pitch, non-standard format that is close to street level, making it highly visible to anyone passing by. Denver Digerati is very excited to inaugurate this dynamic LED as part of our Silent Screen program in 2021.

Silent Screen September 18th, noon -8PM, downtown Denver.

I won’t make it out there to see this in person, but the organizers were kind enough to send some pics and footage of this week’s screen test.

I’m very grateful to be a part of this! I hope someone in Denver gets a kick out of this video.

Brood X

I completed a new animation today, which commemorates this summer of cicadas. I wrote the soundtrack music, and filmed this one in record time, given the amount of work and puppets involved.

You can watch Brood X at Doranimation.com.

More very soon!
