Let the Idiotic Adventures BEGIN!

It's been many months since my first post about Philippe and Pierre. The team has put down their Wacom pens and the result is finally up for everyone to enjoy. Pileated Pictures and myself present to you The Idiotic Adventures of Philippe and Pierre.

Stay tuned every other Monday as we will release a new toon on the Philippe and Pierre website. Check out all the action at

I want to give a HUGE thanks to the folks who made this happen:
1. Mike Levine at Pileated Pictures.
2. Dan Flynn (Animation)
3. Evan Sussman (compositing and effects)
4. Joe Pleiman (Sound design)
5. Fletcher Beasley (Theme Music)
6. Matt Moore (Website)

Although the project was my vision, it couldn't have happened without these folks. I'm truly lucky to have worked with all of them and it shows. Sign up for the newsletter as more toons and goodies are on the way!

Uh-Ohs...It's a Wrap!

For the last three months, I have been working on a series of fun educational safety shorts with SNAP Studios for the National Fire Prevention Association. Scott Nash and his team came up with the look while I co-wrote/directed the shorts. It was the first
time I directed animation using someone else's style, and I had a ton of fun working on them. The talented crew was made up of folks from sea to shining sea. Here's a few stills from the Bike Safety PSA. The video will be up on YouTube in a day or two.
