    NewFilmmakers Ny at Anthology is the premiere showcase for truly personal indie avant-garde work. I am so very honored to have my hand-painted 16mm direct animation abstract short, KITCHEN SINK FILM play at this incredible festival and showcase. Thanks for supporting experimental film.

    I screen my movie WEB at NewFilmmakers NY last week and it went great. The theater is very spacious, picture looks amazing and sound is superb. It was a treat to see my work on the big screen like that. Barney and Bill were great and I made a very awesome connection with someone from the industry who was there watching our films. I highly recommend this series! Thanks again NewFilmmakers NY
