Doug Aberle directed and co-wrote with Scott Doniger of Mazon Productions. Animation and character design are by Aberle Films.
What if you could log onto telescopes all over the world, anytime you wanted, without leaving your home? This promotional video outlines just such a proposal. Using a combination of live action and digital effects, this 14 minute video promotes the installation of hundreds of telescopes all over the world, to be used by astronomers, educators, businesses; anyone who logs on. Anyone.

Keeping a Float
This is the story of people; people who freely volunteer their time and energy and sweat and sometimes even blood to compete in a major parade against full-time professional float builders. The other guys may have enormous budgets, but the Battle Ground volunteers have the heart.
We chronicle the joys, arguing, laughter, fights and just plain craziness that happens in the course of trying to get the float out the door. Literally.
“Travels with Rich” will be a half-hour travel documentary series like no other as Rich, with 23 years of experience in the travel industry, guides us across each of America’s highways and byways from one end to the other, visiting places you may not have thought existed…museums and restaurants and coffee shops and roadside attractions that may not be on the beaten path. Rich’s acerbic wit and charm highlight each journey, punctuated by informative yet humorous animated maps.
The Higgins Chronicles
Prepare yourself for a tongue-in-cheek adventure through space as our young hero Grant Higgins battles aliens made of clay who are attacking the moon in an attempt to steal it’s sand. Don’t try to make too much sense of it; the story is being told by a 98 year-old man, in 1969, who claims to be Grant Higgins himself! It is a madcap fantasy/adventure feature film that can easily spin off into a TV series.
