Oh No Joe
After living together and supporting each other for 18 years, my wife Sheila Coppola and I finally embarked upon a true collaborative venture: a sequence of short animationed scenes that developed out of a series of prints and paintings that she had been working on, along with generative software I had been working on (which eventually became Slot). Oh No Joe is an archetypal "everyman" who wanders through life troubled by the environmental destruction that he himself is partially responsible for.
These two videos are the first completed scenes from a planned series. They were first shown in the Take Three invitational, at the Northwest Film Forum (Seattle) in 2013.
