Stu Maschwitz

By now, most of you have probably heard that The Orphanage has suspended operations. (Co-founder Stu Maschwitz explains further on his blog.)

This is as good time as any to appreciate Stu’s recently updated directorial reel, which shows off his finely developed acumen for storytelling and compelling visuals.

It should be noted that Orphanage Animation Studio, headed by Genndy Tartakovsky, is unaffected by The Orphanage’s closure and is still hard at work on The Power of the Dark Crystal.
