My 3D animated music video, “The Simple Carnival – Go Away I Like You Too Much” has been making the rounds on the film festival circuit. In February, I attended the Toronto Animation Arts Festival International (TAAFI) in Toronto, Canada where I got to see the screening of my video…as well as eighty-four other shorts and four features in three days! It was an excessive smorgasbord of all kinds of animation, but I had a great time.
Plus, when I walked down the street from the theater, I got to see where Bob and Doug McKenzie parked their van in Strange Brew!

A big thank you to all of these festivals! I won’t be able to attend all of these events, but I genuinely appreciate having my work included in them.
I’m pleased to announce that The Simple Carnival – Go Away I Like You Too Much won Best of Show Animation yesterday at the Stereoscopic Displays and Applications conference in San Francisco!
I wasn’t able to be there in person, but the conference appears to be a pretty deep dive into the art, science, and technology behind 3-D imaging. A big thanks goes out to the kind folks at SD&A for the honor!
Earlier today, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that The Simple Carnival – Go Away I Like You Too Much will be broadcast on The Short Film Show. The Short Film Show airs on Sky Channel 192 and Freesat 161 in the UK, and is on Amazon Prime in the US and UK.
Season 2 begins on January 18th; The Simple Carnival – Go Away I Like You Too Much will be featured in episode 3. Looking forward to seeing it!
As I reflected upon 2018, I realized that I forgot to blog about one of my biggest film-related highlights. The animated 3D music video I had worked on for the past year and a half, The Simple Carnival – Go Away I Like You Too Much, premiered at the LA 3-D Movie Festival earlier this month and won 2nd Place USA Film!
I was able to attend this year’s festival and had a great time seeing old friends, making new friends, and watching some terrific films.
A heartfelt thank you to the LA 3-D Club, 3-D Space, and the fantastic audience at the festival for this honor!
A couple weeks ago, I gave a talk at 3D-Con about how I’m using Smitten 3D as a self-directed masters in filmmaking and animation. If you’re interested in low budget DIY indie animation, there’s a lot of behind-the-scenes fun in this presentation.
The animated segments of this presentation were originally screened in 3D. If you have red/cyan 3D glasses, you can view the animated (and live) segments of this presentation in 3D by skipping to the 55:38 mark.

Woke up this morning to find out that my music video “The Problem with Friends” won Best Video at the 2016 National Stereoscopic Association Convention (3D-Con). A big thanks to Heidi Engel and Chris Belin for their musical contributions on the track. Also, a big thanks to the folks at the National Stereoscopic Association for the honor.
