Ryan uses a hand-animated three-dimensional world to explore the life of Ryan Larkin, a pioneer in Canadian animation who now lives on welfare and panhandles for spare change. The documentary Alter egos explores the paths of animators Ryan Larkin and Chris Landreth and the relationship that developed between the two men. Syrinx uses animated charcoal sketches to retell the Greek legend of how Pan made his pipes. Walking examines the way people walk. Street musique creates a visual improvisation from the music performed by sidewalk entertainers. In The end an animator discovers that he's a character in his own work. Bingo answers the question, "What if a lie is told long enough and loud enough?"
