Producer, Composer & Animator
For Acorn Pictures annual LIVEworks show, I wanted the evening to have a strong theme for our fourth season as this was Acorn's flagship event. I decided on a comic book theme and aimed on the work focusing on plot versus character studies. These animations were projected between and during the one acts and short films at LIVEworks IV: Collector's Edition.
Presented by Acorn Pictures, the show was performed at the Underground Theater in Los Angeles November 18-20, 2010.
