Before the breakdown, it's worth saying that this project never would have come together without the absolutely AMAZING people that made it all possible. From the very start, this was a very special project, with a very special team, that came together at a very special time. Without the brilliant ideas, triumphant effort, and complete skill of each and every person involved, none of this would have ever been possible. From the bottom of our hearts, we want to say thank you for making this video a huge success, and a ton of fun.
And to our fans - keep believing! Without you, none of this is possible. Help us to continue this special brand of humor and entertainment by staying in touch, spreading the word, and keeping us encouraged to make more hot shit!
Until next time,

This opening is just a small part of a collaboration project made up by Charles Huettner, Ivan Dixon and James Hatley.
The original idea was to invite some animators to produce, in their own style, a short story in the Simpsons universe.
Despite the fact that the project hasn't been achieved, I wanted to finish what I started.
I'm not entirely sure what to say about this... It all started with the song, which brought to mind dancing fingers. Then floppy puppet rigs led to childish experimentation. And who doesn't enjoy a nice water color texture? Let's just call it a piece on the duality of man.
Light is an experimental animation short created in 2015,
Adopting a linear approach to the animation process where by transitions and drawings are developed and added on the fly without a storyboard, the plan was to transition through the history of light in one seamlessly transitioned sequence.
