Dan Rybicky, a friend and former professor, is presently compiling a number of promos showcasing local Indiana artist Peter Anton. While in Chicago I had the pleasure of studying under Dan during my time in the Midwest. I learned of his time working with Martin Scorsese, his plans of running for office in Gary, Indiana (which he intends to rename "Michael"), and above all his infectious passion with documentary filmmaking. More than any other professor I have him to thank for my interest in this field.
That said, It is great to see Dan getting out a few shorts on this character. I remember talking with him about his plans to expand the project feature length, so be on the lookout.
Until then make sure to check out Peter Anton's exhibition if you are in Chicago. Co-curated by Dan Rybicky and Aaron Wickenden.
