BOP Pizza's Animated Chef
The BOP is located on Lancaster & Broadway in Fell's Point, Baltimore, MD. They had the rights to a chef illustration and wanted a promotional video for their restaurant to show off the variety of dishes they serve. Tonal Vision produced this video for them. Mike Pinkin animated the Chef and Jacquie Greff produced the spot. The in-store video has no sound -- Kraig Greff's music was added to this demo afterward.

Memories of the Warsaw Ghetto
Told through the memories and drawings of little Genio and narrated by family friend, Bernard Bragg, “Memories of the Warsaw Ghetto” is a docudrama film about a boyhood resident of that Ghetto. Deafened early in the war, Genio and his family struggle to survive persecution in Nazi occupied Poland. Behind the Ghetto wall, they find a community of people who refuse to let the Germans strip them of their identity. A community that keeps their culture, their family, and their love alive. But the Germans are determined to destroy them, and their determination is deadly.
