Rob Feldman has captured fans worldwide with his flagship property, Dr. Shroud, an animated series and online game, about a reformed-vampire's pursuit to rescue his only daughter, Wendy, after she is abducted by Necropolis' most dangerous bloodsuckers.
Maxwell Sørensen is a director and animator specializing in stop motion animation, puppetry, and a handmade aesthetic. Max's work has been featured on MTV2, MTVU, FUSE, and as an official selection at the South by Southwest Film Festival 2010. Alex Cohen is a painter based in Bucks County, PA who collaborated with Sorensen to create a claymation-interpretation of his oil painting, "Airfoil", entitled Monkey Dreams: The Fall.
Alicia Milosz's lenticular portraits of dogs and their owners, parents/children tell a story by showing contrast and similarity. The portraits use two or three flip images that move from one image to the next as you step back and forth while viewing the photo. This technique creates motion or change within the same portrait and when applied to dogs/people, provides humorous results given the uncanny similarities between humans and their most devoted companions.
