Animation Hotline

I've set up an voicemail service to allow people to leave messages, and then I chose one of these to animate daily. The animations are under thirty seconds, and range in topics as diverse as the people that leave them. This is my most recent project and where I've been putting the most energy.

Prayers for Peace

Prayers for Peace is a narrative stop-motion animation confronting the memory of my younger brother who was killed in the current conflict in Iraq. Drawn entirely with pastels on a slate chalkboard, the materials used to create the animation become a metaphor for the impermanence of life.

Notes to Self

I've written and then mailed myself a letter every day for over eleven years. The exercise has generated 4015 letters (and counting), which remain meticulously ordered and still sealed to this day.
