Irene's Flood Damage to Vermont Family Farms and How You Can Help

This is an animation I made for about Irene's flood damage to the Liberty Hill Farm in Rochester VT-- the town next to the town that I grew up in. Please share and please come visit B&B's like this one in central VT to help family businesses recover from Irene (The Kennett's lost more than $125,000 in crop damage and loss of milk revenue from the flooding and they claim they are one of the "lucky farms").

The score for this non-fiction animated short is by Clifton Hyde. He took the melody from songs that he wrote while helping his family in Mississippi recover from Hurricane Katrina.

How can you help people like the Kennetts at Liberty Hill Farm? Spread the word about the "I VT NY" benefit concert that my friends and I have organized for this Monday, October 10th. Go to our website to see all the amazing things that will happen that night which include a headlining performance by Amanda Palmer a special guest appearance by Peter Yarrow of Peter Paul & Mary (and other surprise guests); a silent auction which includes three Burton snowboards, season passes to Sugarbush mountain, and lots of amazing original art; a huge table of maple syrup products for sale provided by Deep Mountain Maple co.; and the whole evening is presented by Blue Man Group NYC. There are so many Vermonters in the cast and crew of BMG NYC that the majority of our theater's community is volunteering to help the Brooklyn Bowl run the event. Please come! Please bring your friends! and Please donate generously to help out Vermont! All proceeds from the evening are being donated to the Vermont Farm Disaster Relief Fund and the Vermont Disaster Relief Fund

"off-leash snow storm" posted on

I made this drawing of my dog and her friend yesterday was posted on the NY times' neighborhood blog, "the Local." I made it with a wacom cintiq tablet in photoshop using the stencil/silkscreen style I've been working on this past year. I hope to make real silkscreens like this in 2011- an urban version of Sabra Field maybe?

"Capturing King" non-fiction animation for Martin Luther King day

Civil rights photographer John Goodwin talks about documenting Martin Luther King Jr.'s famous "anti Vietnam" speech at Riverside church, April 4th, 1967. This was the first time that MLK Jr.publicly spoke out against the war, linking the US civil rights struggle to the injustice of the citizens of Vietnam being bombed by our military. In the speech he calls the US government "the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today." I interviewed Mr. Goodwin at his church in New Jersey last year for this piece. His photos were used as reference for the drawings of Dr. King and The audio of Dr. King is from a recording of the speech.
