It’s always sunny when you’re saving money… that’s what you’ll learn when you spend a little time over at sunnova.com.
I had the pleasure of working with Rivet and Acme Fish to make this fun paper animation for the great folks at Sunnova. I hope we get to see some more episodes with these characters in the future!

Bill Carter's "Anything Made of Paper" was written as a present for Damien Echols of the West Memphis Three when he was on death row. Bill and his wife Ruth set out to write a song about love and tragedy. The animated music video is a fictional re-telling of the story that inspired Bill to write the song in the first place, and echoes the hope we all must cling to in the face of injustice.

This is a scene from the longer animated film my wife and I are seeking funding for, tentatively titled "Nine to Five Ned". A whopping 90% of it is being filmed via paper cut-out stop motion in Dragonframe (much more than any other project of mine to date). Hardly any digital work thus far!Animation, Cartooning, Character Design2015
