I'm a filmmaker and animator from Chicago. I've made one 30 min. short film (with both cartoon and live action) that's been accepted to film festivals, and I am currently working on my first feature length.

To the dismay of my 27 fans on Newgrounds, the COOPERsPLANET channel is no more.

I was able to have a few toons on the front page and had a good run. The main reason to eliminate the COOPERsPLANET newgrounds and youtube channels are because they are flooded with copyrighted music. I am working on an animated web series right now and I want it to be completely free of copyright infringment. My new channel and alias is now Weirdo Goon.

My COOPERsPLANET toons and movies will remain on newgrounds and youtube but will no longer be updated. This was my last COOPERsPLANET cartoon, which was a music video for the Tom Petty song, 'Girl on LSD'

Here are links to my new channel

Last year I made an ambitious 31 min. short film comedy called "Bigger & Better Things"

It begins with a 5 min. cartoon and the rest is live-action. It premiered at the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago and was also named an official selection of the Maryland International Film Festival.

Give it a watch when you have a half hour to waste. Enjoy!

My 30 min. quirky short film got accepted to the Maryland International Film Festival! Yay!

Here's the trailer in case you haven't seen it yet. It opens with a 5 minute cartoon which I also submitted to newgrounds last month.

This is the opening 4 min. cartoon for my 30 min. short film; The remainder of the film was done in live-action.

Is it me or did I get robbed from this not making front page??? Oh well...
