METROPOLIS SAMPLE REEL ARCHIVE
An incomplete, achronological sample reel archive. The first piece, “Assembly Line”, made for The Electric Company (CTW) in 1971, was my first job. The collection’s generally poor image quality reflects film sources (mainly 16mm), video transfers, duplication, and primitive digitizing processes. This is all work "made for hire," including educational sequences, non-profit public service announcements, opening title sequences, and TV commercials. There are sequences produced as gifts to non-profit organizations like Amnesty International, the international animation society (ASIFA), and Film Forum. Some of the films were written, designed, animated, produced by me that they could be consider an “independent film” (like “…Dan Quayle”), but were still considered a “job”.
Some jobs came through larger companies such as Colossal Pictures, Broadcast Arts, and Curious Pictures, which sometimes controlled the design (e.g. Keith Haring Foundation)
