This film created in my "Film-Digital-Film" (35MM Class) at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, is a cameraless animation, hand-made directly on a variety of different types of 35mm film-stock using a wide range of techniques.
The film was then professionally transferred to a digital format at Magno/Lab Link in NYC, and edited to the chosen music by Eric Rusiski.

The film hi-lites the organic qualities of film as an analog medium and was featured in the 2006 Philadelphia International Film Festival.


Music: "Summer" from "The Four Seasons" by Vivaldi.

In 1992 I founded my own animation/effects company, Interface Arts.
