Greg Minnaar: Fearless, Almost

I reached out, wondering if he’d want to record a story for a project. And, a lot of drawing later here it is!   It was nice to get to know Greg a bit through our video meetings. He was so laid back that it was disarming. A couple of times I found myself nodding in agreement, “Oh yeah, the same thing happens to me on my bike.” But of course, it’s not the same.

Paul B in the Bicycle Film Festival

  My short animation film about Paul Buchanan and the Church Gap is in the Bicycle Film Festival starting today. Listen to Sandy Carson tell the amazing story of Paul and his leap of faith and watch my clunky (but sincere) animation. Check out the BFF and its sliding ticket prices here .  Paul's story is in Program 4 but there is loads of great work to see in the festival.
