Rodd Perry and Brother Mike Cohen
Director Bio :
Rodd Perry lives in Los Angeles and produces movie advertising while making DIY animations in his spare time. He is the co-creator of the newspaper comic strip “Brevity”. Michael Cohen lives in Brooklyn NY with his wife and young son, who is already a huge Tom Petty fan.

Director Statement :
Growing up in the '80's, my college pal Brother Mike Cohen recorded hours of conversations with his parents. Decades later, as I was trying to teach myself animation, I asked for copies of his cassettes. Brought to life as cartoons, they capture real coming-of-age moments with humor, anger and love.
