WHAT A YEAR !!!!
Hello ! First, let me wish you an abundance of positive energy. We all deserve it... for having the courage to pursue our dreams, for being here, for believing. Universal energy is limitless - there's plenty for everyone.
Me, briefly. I'm a filmmaker based in Los Angeles. I completed an MA and MFA at CSU, Northridge, where I taught for a while in the department of Cinema, Television, and Visual Arts. My passion is short-form animation.
"Ben and Big" is a 38½ minute CGI animated fantasy - yup, for an indie, that's a monster. All good - it's beautiful, in the can, and ready for the 2018 festival circuit. For those who've read this far... a little secret... the film has also been qualified for Academy consideration. So, fingers crossed - many bridges yet to cross, but we are in with a real shot ! Please check out trailer #1 here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFddP5vs7vA We'd so appreciate a thumbs up and for you to spread the word on your social networks. We're going to need a ton of support.
I'll leave you with the theme from the film. "Behind every teardrop lurks a ravenous evil. We had all better learn to get along, or it will devour us." It's a simple logic - if we don't get past this pandemic of endless prejudice we are doomed to being miserable in each other's company FOREVER. And that's a horrible prospect.
