There are things in life you never forget.  One of them, like it or not, is “The Talk”.

In the film, adults share memories of the time when their parents first tried to explain sex to them. Using actual recordings of these recollections and a mix of hand drawn images, photographs, computer generated images as well as stop frame animated toys and props, the memories of several individuals have been caringly recreated in order to best present the awkwardness of one of life’s strangest occurrences.

“The Tumblies” are an animated 3D series for a pre- school audience (ages 2-5). The Tumblies are colourful characters each made out of three or four separate discs, placed on top of each other. These discs are not fixed to one another, so a Tumbly can fall apart. Which often leads to slapstick-like and playfull scenes. The colourful Tumblies discover the world playfully.

2016 Academy Award ® nomination – Best Documentary Short Subject

When Bill Babbitt realizes his brother Manny has committed a crime he agonizes over his decision — should he call the police? Last Day of Freedom is a richly animated personal narrative that tells the story of Bill’s decision to stand by his brother, a Veteran returning from war, as he faces criminal charges, racism, and ultimately the death penalty. The film is a portrait of a man at the nexus of the most pressing social issues of our day- racial bias, veteran’s rights, mental health care and criminal justice.

Created from over 32,000 hand-drawn images, the film has garnered international film attention and won numerous awards since its premiere at Full Frame Film Festival in April 2015 where it won Best Short Documentary. Last Day of Freedom recently won the IDA Award for Best Short Documentary.
