A puffin is an odd and dangerous creature. This little project was made with the cyber-mages over at Option-G and Calvin Florian. There was very little money, so Darren Pasemko and I had to get creative with our choices of what to animate, and what to leave the hell alone. This experiment in animation frugality led to some hilarious workarounds.

We got our grubby hands on Jerry Levitan's fantastic 1969 recording of John Lennon, and animated it with our own brand of wiggles and ink squirts. This was my first-ever film, and it was nominated for an Oscar in 2008. It went on to win an Emmy in 2009, and a Guggenheim/Youtube prize in 2010.
