I wrote, directed, and edited this commercial for the Independence Public Library in Independence, KS.  Before I went full-time as a freelancer, I was a librarian; now that I've decided that full-time freelancing isn't for me (I like the freedom to turn down clients when the work they're offering doesn't excite me), I'm back at work at a library.  Thing is, though, libraries always need cool promotional tools, so while you might at first think it's boring work, you'd be wrong...I get to do all KINDS of creative stuff!  Case in point:  this commercial.

I often say I didn't get serious about making comics until I decided film school wasn't for me, but truth be known, I don't think I could ever turn my back entirely on any of the media in which I enjoy working.  I will always have the film bug, same as I have the comics bug.  Maybe someday I'll actually get around to that feature I keep threatening to make...

Anyway, if you want to see the commercial, Click HERE!
