Introducing Studio MadBird - a compact daylight photography studio set at the base of the picturesque St. Johns Bridge in Portland, Oregon.
Animated short “Roadside Attraction No. 1” will premiere at the Ashland Independent Film Festival April 6-10.
The Hollywood Theatre at Portland International Airport lit its marquee in the C Concourse Thursday afternoon, in a grand opening ceremony with Port officials, Hollywood Theatre Executive Director Doug Whyte, donors and filmmakers in attendance. Patrick Neary’s animated short "CowBurd" was selected to play in the first program of locally produced animated and live-action short films which will run continuously for the next three months.
Animated short film CowBurd will play at the Grand Opening of the Hollywood Theatre at Portland International Airport (PDX), starting on February 23, 2017.
Mad Bird Design donated our vintage Moviola 35mm film editing machine - a piece of Portland film history - to Portland’s Hollywood Theatre.
Wishing you a happy, healthy, and promising New Year! It’s time to celebrate a new year of fresh possibilities … like a smallish Sasquatch with mad ice-skating skills. Enjoy!
Happy holidays from Mad Bird Design!

New super-short cartoon from Patrick Neary uses a technique that sets hand-drawn 2D animation into a 3D (After Effects) environment, giving it a miniature diorama look like old View-Master reels.
