Shadowbox Cinema/Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit

OH HAI. It sort of slipped my mind that "Southern Exposure" was asked to be in this program that was shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit. It was nice of the Ann Arbor Film Festival to ask me to participate, and evidently, I won second prize in the audience vote. I used the money to buy "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2," which isn't really very artsy of me, but whatever.

Sidewalk Moving Picture Festival

Oh, I forgot to mention... "Southern Exposure" was screened at the end of September at the Sidewalk Moving Picture Festival. The film festival is held in Birmingham, AL. I was actually really relieved and gratified when they contacted me and told me that they wanted to include me in the program. While making the film, I was always sort of anxious that Southerners would find it offensive and full of Northeast-elitist snobbery, which was definitely not my intention. The acceptance of my submission into a very southern film festival showed that at least a handful of people in Alabama found my film amusing and not insulting!

Woman Waiting for the Bus in Allston

I just found this sketch that I had drawn in April of a woman that my friend and I drove by. She was waiting for the bus. She had a floral muumuu, a beehive, a mullet, and a unibrow. She was a cartoon character if I ever saw one.

Toast Wedding Animation

video
This is a short animation that I did for the wedding videography company, Duet Films. Because nothing goes together like peanut butter and jelly.

My friend, Heather, helped me come up with the cute little idea. Although we did briefly worry that when the 2 pieces of toast squish together, it might be construed as, uh, somewhat sexual.
