In which I make an appearance on Das Process (the podcast)

I got a chance to have a really fun conversation today with Mackenzie Astin on the Das Process podcast. They talk to artists, filmmakers, and creative types of all sorts. This one ties in with trying to promote our Kickstarter for I'm Scared, based on the incredible artwork of Greg "Craola" Simkins. (We also talk quite a bit about baseball and the Orioles animation I've been doing.)

For more information about Greg, you can take a listen to his Das Process episode. (Recorded well before we started scheming about I'm Scared.)

Here's a picture of Dan Levy (producer of I'm Scared), Greg, and Mack:

"I'm Scared" -- a short stop-motion film based on the artwork of Greg Simkins

A lot of projects going on, some projects I haven't written about yet, some of projects I can't write about yet. But, here's a project where I need to write about it in a timely fashion!

It's (hopefully) going to be a short stop motion animated film. And if it happens, it'll be based on the artwork of Mr. Greg "Craola" Simkins. Greg Simkins, for those who don't know him is a painter, an illustrator, a designer, and a strong presence in the contemporary/pop surrealist/new brow art movement. He's also a super nice guy and can hopefully soon add "stop motion animation producer" to his long list of accomplishments.

Here's what I'm talking about:

Produced by Dan Levy, Greg Simkins, and myself
Based on a poem, drawings, and concept by Greg Simkins
Directed by me!
Art director would be Robyn Yannoukos
Sculptor would be Lesley Padien
