Differences Animation short

From the director of "READ A BOOK", Tyree Dillihay presents "DIFFERENCES"...the first in a series of shorts where children from different races and cultures learn more about one a very innocent way.

This film was conceptualized over a year ago, but, after all the controversy READ A BOOK caused, I figured it'd be best I show people another side of my storytelling while still keeping it provocative.

If you like what you support by simply passing the link on and let's get more animated content out that actually makes people THINK.

Produced by Six Point Harness Studios

Stay Tuned for much more to come...

Waynehead Cartoon Flashback

"Waynehead, Waynehead, The party's jut begun. Waynehead, Waynehead, The 411 for fun…"

Inspired by the childhood of film/TV actor Damon Wayans, Waynehead proved that physical and financial challenges were no match for a healthy imagination and a smooth attitude. Damey Wayne was the star's 10-year-old alter ego, complete with a few autobiographical touches: Both Damon and Damey were born with a "club" foot, which slowed down their bodies but had no effect on their highly creative minds. The "Waynehead" nickname was another true-life note, given to Damey and his brothers because of their home-sheared hairdos.

In the cartoon, Damey and family lived in lower Manhattan, where the boy went through the usual ups and downs of childhood. The lack of money in the Wayne household made for a few extra challenges, but Damey compensated, as always, with creativity. If he wanted a toy, he built one from the neighborhood junk. The boy also honed his mechanical skills by taking apart anything he could get his hands on, though putting it back together was another matter. Through it all, Damey's family and friends—Monique, Shavonne, Toof, Blue, three-legged dog Tripod and others—always stuck together.

The cartoon was a family affair all around, with Wayans siblings Kim, Shawn and Marlon all providing voices. With its warm humor and message of accepting those who are different, Waynehead earned high praise, but it wasn't enough to save the show from cancellation after a single season
