The Hand of Professor Karloff (2017)

I created this short film for the 2017 iteration of Fantastic Fest's Filmmaking Frenzy competition. The theme this year was "Creature Feature" with the stipulation that the creature had to be created with practical effects. I enjoyed this challenge.

2016 Christmas Card (2016)

This short doubled as both a Christmas card I could share with friends and family and an animation test for an upcoming short film. The music is from Jazz Legend Dexter Gordon.
