BOMB SCARE. This one was made by a trained Jim Henson Puppeteer. Do you know how fun this was to help shoot? Well, it was lots of fun. Lots. Come check out this month’s Animated Stories.

Living in New York, we’ve all been in this situation - it’s late nights, there are drunks on the train, and a homeless person has settled into a subway car for a night’s rest. Always a bad combination. Check out this hilarious Animated Story: I’d Rather Take the Train by Anthony Atamanuik and Rory Panagotopulos

In May 2011 I decide to illegally grow a vegetable garden on a neglected patch of land in Brooklyn. While tending the garden this summer I encountered a thief, a dirty old man, and GOD — as documented in this follow up video.

Here’s a video I directed.  It has some of my favorite UCB people in it.  Dru Johnston, Dan Klein, Pam Murphy, Sue Galloway, Emily Axford and Zach Woods of The Office.
