A Revival of Newt Street Pictures
In 1987, a producer named Newton Street found me while I was in dark alley behind a Cuban restaurant animating my first film “The Chore” and gave me 5 bucks to be the producer on it. Thus was born “Newt Street Pictures”. He then went on to produce my second film “My Dog Zero”, but suddenly disappeared amongst a scandal involving zoo animals and canned soup. Little was heard except for odd postcards from south America and remote parts of Africa until recently when I got an email telling me that I had inherited a million dollars and I needed to contact this lawyer in Bali. This email had nothing to do with the fact that Newton showed up at my door, hearing that I had again immersed myself in independent film, and offered his services on “Fish Head”. We were both more weathered than when we worked together before, but I had gray hair and he had an odd hair color that looked as if it was derived from a lather of mole’. I was happy to see him.
Oddly enough, this partnership seems back up and running, and “Newt Street Pictures will once again adorn my films. A grateful reunion indeed.
