Over the summer I worked on James Franco’s ‘The Labyrinth’ creating animated interstitials to tie the seven USC shorts he executive produced into a feature film.

 

The animation was created the old-fashioned way so I drew around 1700 drawings on paper for the 2 minute and 20 second animation which consists exclusively of moving camera shots as we follow an unseen protagonist through the vast maze.

 

James lent his voice to the animation as well as executive produced it.

 

The Labyrinth is a compendium of character-based original short stories, exploring the unknown, the unexplained and the unimaginable.

My film, Baboon will be playing as part of Slamdance ON THE ROAD: Anarchy Underground and Experimental Shorts at the Downtown Independent at 6.30 pm.  I will be there but if that is not exciting enough in itself, there will also be drinks.

Further development of Pastor John Deitman for The Pride of Strathmoor.  I am both playing with his design before I commit to animating as well as trying to figure out a scene in which he plunges into despair.
