PES: The Art of the Short Film
PES is the creator of some of the most popular, memorable and iconic short films of the last decade. He has been featured in a wide variety of publications and venues, including The New York Times, the front pages of YouTube in 22 countries, and the Guggenheim Museum. His short, Western Spaghetti, was named #2 Viral Video of the Year by TIME Magazine and his most recent film, Fresh Guacamole, received 5MM views on YouTube in the first month. Perhaps Director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Green Hornet) said it best: "Clicking on a PES film is to open a safe and suddenly see a million ideas glittering and exploding." PES is currently in development on a feature film of the Garbage Pail Kids for former Disney CEO Michael Eisner's Tornante Company.
