I love making animated shorts.  For years I've been subsidizing this passion with commercial work, it's always been a difficult balancing act. I'm doing this Patreon to fund an ongoing series of independent animated shorts. I've made over 10 independent films since 2001, I like to use metaphor to visually illustrate personal, social, and political themes. In the next few years I plan to tackle topics like prison, prostitution, and gun violence. My most recent short "Gun Shop" was just completed, it's my first foray into Stop Motion animation, also one of my first openly political shorts. Pledge now for an exclusive first look! My 2018 short "Pour 585" has won over 12 major international film festival awards, and has been viewed over 4 million times online. Please help me to continue production!
