Credits

8/14 – 8/14

Sketch Artist Monocular Man: My Eye & Saturn V

Film (Short) — Jack Feldstein Neon Animation Details
8/14 – 8/14

Drew each scene of a 15min audio recording, where narrator R. Jim Stahl humorously recounts losing an eye at age 13. Pictures are sketched within seconds, yet collected together they depict the full story. My hands in motion are filmed, then edited/changed by the director. Second place short at PCFF.

4/14 – 5/14

Sketch Artist How To Break Into Yiddish Vaudeville

Film (Short) — Jack Feldstein Neon Animation Details
4/14 – 5/14

Listened to and discussed 15-20min audio recording by Shane Baker. Includes comedy, personal memoir, and niche theater history. Made quick renderings of the people/places described, and my drawing hands are the visual component for the film. Sponsored by the Congress for Jewish Culture, premiered at NYJFF.
