Eugene Salandra

A New Jersey native, I studied film and television at New York University, and drawing at the Art Students' League of New York. Excepting a brief Benedictine monastic sojourn, my life has been occupied with practicing the art of animation. Mentors John Canemaker and the late Tissa David were among my influences. Favorite things include drawing, watercolor, tea and herbalism, yoga, meditation, music, theatre, puppetry, crochet, nature strolls, and vegetarian cooking.

This piece was done for the upcoming winter Holidays, and will be featured in the 2016 Animation Guild calendar.

FaerieFilm (newly remastered)



"FaerieFilm" has at last been digitally remastered from the original 16mm negatives!  22 years after its premiere, it looks much like it did when it was first screened.
