CONCEPT ART

All the best stories begin with images. Most the time I have no idea what I just drew or why… but then a story starts to form.

 

Explore the world of MOSLEY

Mosley is the animated film I always wished somebody would make just so I could go see it.

20 years ago I was just starting my career in film and, coincidentally, starting my family. I wrote the movie I wanted to see and didn’t give too much thought to what was trending in animation or my chances in realizing such a thing in the industry. I storyboarded the entire movie. Then I cut the boards together to see how it played. I needed voices-- particularly for the characters of Mosley and Rue. At that point my daughter Leah was seven years old and very familiar with the world.

So one day I decided to record us playing out a few scenes.

That changed everything. Those performances are the very ones you'll hear in the final movie, MOSLEY...
