"A Time for All Seasonings" on Vimeo

For those of you who didn't know I made an animated short film, well...I made an animated short film. I uploaded the video to Vimeo and it's a bit larger than the video posted to the film's website.

So here it is. As a film, it contains some very beautiful and cheerful animation, a great(improvised) piano score. It also has all the short comings of a first film by a first-time filmmaker.

To this day, I'm grateful to everyone who worked on it (all the animation drawings and mattes were individually scanned, cleaned and painted). That's why the list of assistant artists is so long. Even if someone just worked on the project for a day, I put their name up there.

A chunk of my animation on the film is from back in college (ten years ago) along with some great animation by professionals Mike Owens and Joe Merideth who came in and matched my style of animation extremely well.

Hey Bj, digg'n the new header, I seem to remember you doing many versions of yourself and the pooch.
Congrats on a great film, it musta felt great to finally get it all done; it's definately an achievment. Your style of animation shows in everything you do.
I'm starting to wonder where you find all this time to do amazing animation. Billionaire parents?...Animator or vigiliante.
Nice work man, it always makes me pick up a pencil when I see your work.

Great job again BJ :) I randomly saw a man on the El this morning, who looked like one half of the Shaker Brothers! He did smell strongly of spice as well....Old Spice.
