When a shopping cart with no front wheels is bullied and ostracized for its idiosyncrasies, it finds some unassuming encouragement on its path to self-realization. "Cartwheels" is the upcoming short currently in production. Tap the title to see a teaser and links to behind the scenes stuff, too.

Tap the title above to check it out. "Bouncer" was created for the ProjectTwenty1 Film Festival. The theme for 2019 was "Passage". This won Wobblewheel its first award for Best Animation.
An abandoned shopping cart looks for purpose while others struggle in the outside world. "Everything Must Go!" was a thesis and first complete idea featuring shopping carts as characters. The short was experimental in concept and execution, so story took a back seat.
"You're It!" was the inaugural study of two carts playing tag that literally brought this concept to life. It was also an opportunity to play with the idea of a loop, which is a clip that ends where it began.
This loop was shot just before the stay-at-home order was issued here. Just playing with the idea of panic and social distancing...among stray carts.
This little loop was made at the beginning of the pandemic. Just keeping a humor about the situation and encouraging people to stay clean and safe.
Collab with crochet artist Nicole Nikolich @lace_in_the_moon. A blend of yarn, stop motion, and digital animation. A fun take on the life cycle of flowers...no botanical science here.
Quick collab-sort-of using characters from Philly designer Gina Scamuffa @scamuffastudios. This was just a fun study working with 2d and another artists designs.
