Elkhart Express PosterI find that I learn best when I’m thrown headfirst into a project.

To be honest, I figured that piece of advice out after I decided to produce a digitally animated short film about Glenn Cunningham.

And what did I learn from doing the film? Well, here’s a list:

  1. My drawing is not the best.
  2. Troubleshooting at two a.m. will not give the best results.
  3. Juggling two film productions (this being one, and The Electric Sheepdog being the other), along with school finals is not a good idea.

Yes, it was a lot of pain and a lot of work.

But after several months of working through weekends, I finally managed to finish producing Elkhart Express: The Glenn Cunningham Story.

As the title suggests, it’s a short film based on the life of Glenn Cunningham, the man who held the world record for the mile in the 1930s. And while I sometimes call it a biopic, to the best of my knowledge, all the information presented is accurate. I found Glenn Cunningham’s story to be a thrilling story of determination and hope, and I hope you will find that my representation of his story keeps that spirit.
