A Miracle On Jay Ave

A short stop motion film with humor, love and His Holiness.

Director Biography - Bernie Rieser

Bernie Rieser is a fun-spirited man of many talents and passions. Although this is his first submission to a film festival, he has for many years created numerous projects, in various media, to the delight of many. Especially his mother. He is a rare individual that can use one side of his brain for his day job, and the other side of his brain for artistic enjoyment. He is happily married, recently, to a high school crush.

Director Statement

I have always been drawn to short films, animation and stop action. I was able to use this experience to create a sweet, funny and romantic film, using these techniques. This film was created as a Christmas present to my loving wife, Jeneen. I hope that you enjoy it as much as we do!
