Sometimes, when things feel bad, it can be helpful to sing a song about cooperation and working together.
Luckily, the theme song to the PBS Kids show “Arthur” is exactly that, and Stephen Colbert & Jon Batiste (plus special guests Ziggy Marley & Chance the Rapper) are all BIG fans of that show.
Produced by Heben Nigatu, Rob Dubbin, & Carol Hartsell.

So excited that I got to direct this Claymation Christmas special for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
It hit all of my sweet spots: Christmas, tiny sets, claymation, retro type design, and really over-producing really stupid jokes.
Massive thanks to Ariel Dumas & Michael Brumm for writing such a perfectly dumb premise, Riley Mellon for her incredible set design, and Aaron Bryan for being handsy. MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE!

I am really proud that I got the chance to make some strange comedy there, including this short with the great comedic actor Richard Kind, filmed on-location at the DNC in Philadelphia, PA. Written by Cullen Crawford & Rob Dubbin.
The 1970s in NYC were crazy. But few people knew how crazy. That why I’m so glad to get to share this moving documentary about such a little known, yet important, part of New York history.
