Elevator Pitch: “Concrete Jungle” is an animated comedy about humans and animals coexisting in New York City. The series follows two roommates, a dog named Frank (John DiMaggio) and a human named Jack (Steven Cartoccio) as they navigate the big city.

About the Film: “Concrete Jungle” started out as my stop-motion thesis film for the School of Visual Arts back in 2010. The short was a series of vignettes that upon graduation I turned into a pilot episode. I was (still am) broke, and with no budget, wrote, directed, animated, edited and voiced all the characters. I used this pilot to get John DiMaggio, Hannibal Buress, Eugene Mirman and Dana Snyder involved in the series, and re-voiced the pilot with John as the lead. I ran a successful Kickstarter campaign with that pilot, and created a second episode which recently premiered.
Current Status: Post-production Episode Two. Pre-production Episode Three.
