Chipmunk King Crowned Winner At LACS 2012
I am proud to announce that my animated short, “Rise Of The Chipmunk King,” won “Best Animated Comedy Short” at 2012’s L.A. Comedy Shorts Film Festival! I am still in a joy fog. Winning this award capped off a wonderful weekend of hilarious films, talented filmmakers, and new friendships. It’s an experience that I will carry around in my thought chasm for a while to come.
Being a part of the festival last year with my animated short “A Cock Tale,” I came away creatively energized and laser focused by all that I’d seen. The experience fueled my 2011 summer of Stuper Powers, and after the experience I had this year, I feel even more motivated to continue pushing myself in this realm.
With the L.A. Comedy Shorts Film Festival, Gary Anthony Williams, Jeannie Roshar, and Ryan Higman have created something special for filmmakers, writers, and fans of comedy. You laugh till you cry, and then you laugh some more! As a filmmaker, it’s infinitely inspiring to conspire with such a diverse mix of comedic and creative sensibilities. You can’t help but come away inspired and motivated to create a mountain of great new work.
So, to all the people behind this great festival, THANK YOU for creating such a meaningful platform for creators of comedic storytelling to thrive, inspire, learn, and grow. I know the effect it’s had on my work and can only hope it continues to inspire other artists as much as it has me.
Stay tuned for new weekly Stuper Powers starting in June. Cheers!
