Happy Valentine's Day.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! Enjoy your loved one. Unless you don't have a loved one. In which case, just drink until you think of someone who COULD be your loved one. Give them a call, they'll love it! VIVA AMORE!

Bonnaroo needed slave labor

A couple weeks ago, I got to help out with production company Ghost Robot's animated sequence for the Bonnaroo festival this year. By "help out", I mean cut paper with X-Acto Blades for eight hours a day. All of THIS is cut paper animation, shot though thirteen layers of glass (no computer assist) Check it out, it is AMAZING:

My hands ache looking at it, the way Grandpa's hands ached when it would rain, or when you pushed bamboo skewers under his nails.


SOLD. So long, old friend(s).

- Food Party -

I've had a lot of people asking about the psychedelic half-puppet cooking show I co-write and direct for, Thu Tran's FOOD PARTY.

(If you don't know about Food Party, then you can learn all about it at your local public library, OR here: www.foodparty.tv)
Last month marked our fourth episode release party at the Monkeytown screening room in Brooklyn. (www.monkeytownhq.com ) The newest episode involves the soap-opera antics of love and death between your lovable host, Thu Tran, and her lover (played by a piece of bread).

If someone had offered us to do Food Party as a for-honest-to-God television show, I would have thought they were some sort of disguised evil troll, trying to steal our souls and gold. "Riddle-me-dee! A show all for me!" The troll would gloat. BUT WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN? We got a guaranteed non-troll offer to do just that. Due to a lot of blood, sweat and gumption, Food Party will soon be filming a number of BRAND NEW episodes for the Independent Film Channel. Pre-production begins in early March, and should be wrapping in May. This is a very big venture for everyone involved, we are really excited. I'll keep you as updated as I feel like!
