A love story so backwards, it has to be told in reverse.
Aaron Hughes lives in Brooklyn and is a "director" in a different sense. He's directionally challenged and accidentally directed his latest short Backwards completely in the wrong direction! Before that he continued to work as animator, illustrator, cartoonist, and professor of animation at NYU and the Pratt institute. Before that, he struggled to find work after graduating. Way before that, he was born down in Texas, near the border of Mexico. He made shorts Fred’s Box (2003), Petunia (2002) and many commissioned works.
