Occupying Pittsburgh, New York, Cincinnati, and Columbus

With the great help of Sarah Achor (Photographer, Artistic Consultant), Mathilda Longfellow (Artist and Performer) and Miharu Kato (Photographer) I am almost completed with my stop motion animated short film centering on the two sides of mathilda longfellow both as a confident bombshell and as a quirky boy.
