jerry lieberman flipbook animation
This animation is the opening clip on the Jerry Lieberman Productions website. Conceived by Jerry as a unique calling card, he had worked in collaboration with designer and illustrator, Seymour Schwast, to create it as a flipbook. I later brought these drawings to life for the first time as a special feature while building his website. Music and sound track by Sam Seeger.
This animation was created as an online promotion for Tunesat, a webtool for musicians for tracking and reporting song usage on TV and the Internet. It was featured on the homepage of their site when it was first launched. The character was designed and drawn by son, Sam Seeger and together we animated it.
It was especially gratifying for me to be able to pass on some of the old school animation trickas and techniques I had learned from Sam's grandpa, Hal Seeger.

Everyday is Earth Day! Abiding Presents is my way of expressing my dedication to protecting our environment. Hence, this animation of a cigar box upcycled into this one-of-a-kind keepsake. An ardent collector of uplifting quotes and opportune
messages found in fortune cookies,
This, combined with my passion for making something from nothing and a compulsive propensity to think first before throwing anything away has become my collection of unique upcycled gifts.

playboy channel pilot
At the time, Cable TV was taking off big time. All the new cable stations were up and coming and it was all the buzz that Playboy was hot to launch its own Playboy Channel. In light of the success of the Cartoon-a-torial series, Hal Seeger came up with the idea to follow that model using the cartoons that appeared in Playboy magazine These two cartoons were created as pilots for his pitch.
"Cartoon-a-torial" was was created by Hal Seeger Studios in partnership with Newsweek magazine from 1978 to 1982. This was my very first job in the film industry and we created over 500 of these political cartoons. In lloking back on them, it seems like we are still plagued by the same issues.
