Gary M. Sanner is the director, producer, writer, composer (his passion), editor, and secondary artist and videographer for the animated short DERIVATIVE (2020). A musically illiterate emotional outsider, he makes up music in his head and matches it to sounds produced by a scorewriter app, which generates the audio. This years-long process often evokes narrative imagery in his mind, hence the video short. Other creative pursuits include lyrics, essays, and graphics.
He was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1956, and left for California as soon as he turned 18. For more background information, see "My Big Fat Mental Health History" at the end of SOCIAL COMMENTARIES / LEFTIST PROPAGANDA (attached).
