Stefan handles both the titling and animated sequence scenes with his gritty unvarnished flashes of pop art story-telling. He can bring normally overlooked objects and personal archive writings to dance alive with a fresh conveyance. Almost in a new medium type of way.

But, Stefan doesn't stop there. He just emailed - that he's almost done wrapping on the Garry Shandling documentary he's animating. Being directed by Judd Apatow, Stefan will concentrate on the journals & notebooks of Garry's for animating scenes and titles. He said, between Cobain, Jane & now Garry, that makes three lives he's gotten to know intimately.
Stefan went on to mention he read an article that the HBO series - The Deuce (a nod to 42nd Street) had its key visual reference based on photos from this notorious dive across from the Port Authority back in the 70's & 80's...called The Terminal Bar 'One'!
