Short Stack 2

In honor of Earth Week (which includes Earth Day and Arbor Day), I opted for three shorts that have messages about conversation.

Before I started working towards a career in animation, I wanted to be a zoologist and make documentaries for Animal Planet and National Geographic. Only recently, so many years later, am I understanding that I can still honor those wishes in some way–I can use my platform as a filmmaker to make the kind of movies that affect people and get people to care about the environment and wildlife.

I hope these films do just that.

Turtle Journey (2020)

Rang-Tan (2018)

Bonus! OK K.O.! + Captain Planet

The last one here is an easter egg for the site only! OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes was a show that ran on Cartoon Network from 2013 til 2019, and it was known to have some pretty awesome guest stars. One of which was Mr. Earth Day himself, Captain Planet!! Here’s a clip from that episode:

I actually got to meet the show’s creator, Ian Jones-Quartey at Cartoon Network when I interviewed him for an article I have up on Cartoon Brew!
