    This was one of many episodes of "Life in the Fridge" created for the first season of CBS Inc.'s "Pee Wee's Playhouse" produced by Broadcast Arts in NYC. I worked as the DP (director of photography) with director: Rob Niosi, animator: Spencer Cook & producer Eric Herrmann. This is what occupied most of my summer in 1986. In addition to doing the lighting and camera work I also did motion control and occasionally animated a shot or two. In this episode the food has formed a circus with a tomato trapeze act. We shot 35 mm film at 24fps of the tomato swing against a grid background before doing the stop motion to analyze the incrementation. I rigged the teeter-totter shot of the sandwich launch as a down-shoot with the camera overhead looking straight down.
