First Film Unearthed!

When animation director Russell Calabrese visited Buzzco he noticed a small 16mm film reel. Asking what it was, I couldn't remember and he brought back to his studio to digitize it.

It was my very first attempt in animation, made in 1970 with my friend sculptor Andrea Hollis as the final requirement for Intro to Filmmaking. We took clear leader and added sticky patterned tape and magic markers to make the film and Russell, so inspired, created the fabulous sound track.

Then he asked, what's the title? Surprise!
