I worked 16 hours a day every day for the entire lock down and a bit beyond. My wife befriended the squirrels and they would come in the house in front of a green screen… she was able to pet them and massage them, it was incredible. I also used the grass itself in the backyard as a natural green screen and built a human sized squirrel hand that I composited onto them to make them drum and play guitar.”Animator Daniel Robert Cohn
What a sweet trip down memory lane. From my vantage. Point in 2021, the Squirrel Commander in Chief can be Trump OR Joe Biden; watch twice and see if you can identify all the legendary/iconic memes and or buzz words from the last five years. You can be certain which one you are actually watching and hearing in the performance. See the video. LIKE, Share the video and laugh.
Do it NOW, ‘cause… wait for it in five…four…three…two…one…The World’s Gone Nutz!
“The World’s Gone Nutz” Premiered at the 2021 Marina Del Rey Film Festival and the 2021 Dances With Films Festival.
