A new space race is born between NASA and the ESA when Charlie Brownsville, Hank Morrison, and Dr. Casey Cook compete against an artificially intelligent robot to find out what's up there on the red planet. 'Mars' follows these three astronauts on the first manned mission to our galactic neighbor. On the way they experience life threatening accidents, self doubts, obnoxious reporters, and the boredom of extended space travel.

This romantic comedy is told in the playful style of a graphic novel- using a unique animation process that director Geoff Marslett developed specifically for the film. Underneath the silliness Mars is also an exploration of exploration. Why do we want to know what is out there? How do we react to what we find? Is it really that important? And where does love fit into the whole thing?

While our brave astronauts are out there taming the new frontier, their voyage is reflected, and sometimes distorted, through the eyes of the reporters, scientists, and politicians back home. Once they reach the 'new world' life and love flourish in the most unexpected places.

In addition to directing MARS, Geoff was lucky enough to do some
producing and effects work on a fantastic short film, IN THIS PLACE, which is premiered at Cinequest in San Jose and will be playing in June at the
Dead Center film festival in OK city!
IN THIS PLACE was written and directed by Amy Bench.

There is also a new online work page...which I will try to update soon.

And an even newer page for my daily animations. For the last ten years I have been animated non-sequiters, non-sense,
walk cycles, lip syncs, and other several second oddities...and then deleting them. But now, since
the internet is vast and endless I am going to start collecting them here.......

So I still haven't figured out how I am going to organize it, but for now here are the
humble beginnings.

And oh yeah...we've been getting some good press lately!

I'll be posting some links soon.

And don't worry, all the old info on the short films is still here.
