Early in 2017 I finished “The Pitch”, a short animated film that I’ve been working on… since 2012! It didn’t take long to write, and the voices were recorded in short order (the voices being Paul Oros and Damian Kearns, who was also at the controls) — but animating the darn thing, well, that was another matter. There were lots of reasons not to plunge right in (the day job, parental duties, etc.), so it was put in the drawer for a while. I pulled it out again and got to work in earnest in the fall of 2015. When the animation was just about done I enlisted Damian again for the sound design and music, and he really delivered. Anyhow, when you watch a cartoon it’s supposed to look effortless. So forget how long it took and just enjoy it here.
