The Inventor Flight Scene

I am pleased to present a full scene from my hopeful upcoming feature animated film, The Inventor. This film has been brewing in my mind since 2007 and to be able to bring it to life in this short scene has been a dream come true. I couldn't have made this without the brilliant writing of Andreas Petersen or the incredible score by John Dixon.  This scene was made possible through the support and funding of our producer Joseph Grosodonia who has believed in the project from our very first talks.  Special thanks go out to our wonderful voice actors, Thomas Petersen who nails the Inventor and my lovely wife Alicia who somehow transformed into a very believable 12 year old protagonist!  Thanks so much for watching and please SHARE!  With your support we can tell Amira's story in full.

The Inventor Production Diaries

I am in production on a short scene from my (hopeful) upcoming feature animated film, The Inventor.  My team and I are hoping to showcase a beautiful segment of the film in an effort to secure funding for the film proper.  I am posting regular production diaries talking about the process and will be adding them here as they are released.  Check em out, and thanks for supporting independent animation!

Red Pill - Stars

A traveling sword for hire finds himself in larger than life adventures. Unfortunately, the pay doesn't measure up. An allegory for the freelance lifestyle.

The Friar and the Pea - The Life and Legacy of Gregor Mendel

My wife and I collaborated on an animated biography of Gregor Mendel and his contribution to science. It was a fun project that we managed to make really quickly. I'd love to make more pieces in this vein.

UPDATE: Life on Paper

I recently edited together all the episodes of Life on Paper into one 35 minute long short film. I have always intended this project to eventually become a feature length memoir/documentary on the pregnancy, birth, and first year of our daughter Lily's life. This block represents the half way mark. I hope to one day be able to finish the rest of the story. I am biased, but I feel it gets pretty good. Right now, enjoy this first part. I welcome any feedback. I, personally, feel like I can make it tighter and there's a lengthy list of things I'd like to tweak. It's an evolving film at this point, but I'm fond of it. Thanks for watching!
