“A Modern Marriage”

“Eat Healthy, Kids!”

“Eat Healthy, Ya Jerk!”


Modern_MarriageQ: Why did you become a filmmaker?

MS: The market for shiftless layabouts dried up in the mid-2000’s, so I had to come up with something that would seem about the same speed.

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?

MS: A Modern Marriage is an animated short that’s about a couple celebrating their first wedding anniversary. They quickly find out they really don’t know each other as well s they thought they did. As far as plans go: I want it to speak to the world in such a way that it brings about peace and healing. So far that hasn’t happened.

Q: What else are you working on?

MS: In between meals I’m working on The Denver Nickel & Dime Animation Extravaganza, a program made specifically for the Denver area that will feature animation from around the globe and the talented artists that created them. No, really. Expect that in Spring 2017.

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?

MS: Neither I or my material are funded by special interest groups. I think that should be on the minds of voters when they go to the polls this next election. #VoteMe

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?

MS: Their local library or clergyman. Or www.happyfattiestoons.com.

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about The Emerging Filmmakers Project?

MS: Whenever I attend an EFP event I know I’m going to be treated with respect and love that my family just doesn’t provide me with at home.
