Head Up Heart Higher: An Animated Folk Rock Opera


Cartoons made my creative life possible.

From an early age, animation has always been a source of profound inspiration, joy and meaning for me.

Schultz and Watterson shifted my inner geography from day one.

In fact, one of my early career aspirations was to become a cartoonist. I even bought books and took classes. And you couldn't pry the pencil and paper away from me with a crowbar.

But then one day my art teacher informed me that “tracing” didn’t qualify as effective draftsmanship. Woops.

Thirty years later, however, I ended up becoming a successful  author, songwriter, consultant, public speaker, filmmaker and a few other things too. And when the time came to start my next project, I finally decided to resurrect my childhood dream.

With the help of an amazing animator, the cartoon started to come to life.

A year later, the animated folk rock opera was complete.

And the five year old inside of me cried tears of joy.

Here's the trailer:
