Director Biography - James Middleton

Illustrator, animator, writer, and now a gladly retired pharmacist in order to focus on animation. Happily serving as secretary for ASIFA Central. Former juror to the Ann Arbor 8mm Film Festival and KAFI experience in Michigan (oh those were the days). Jim likes to make the most of discarded technology (although non-linear editing is just about the best thing since splicing tapes).

Director Statement

If your stream of consciousness flows long enough, it will eventually make sense. That pulsing fog as you touch on twilight or fitfully rouse to do your cat's bidding is often the best catalyst to imagination.
I try not to let the world roll over me - I leap instead, and let it roll under. It tickles.
