Buzzco Associates

Buzzco Associates Buzzco Associates is a NYC based animation studio specializing in 2D drawn animation: with experience of traditional cel animation done now digitally.
We create animated films: from short web-based cartoons to network programming: from commercials to educational to independent shorts and film.

Buzzco Associates is now bigger than its founders. Look for new "associates" such as longtime animator, Rick Broas, newtime collaborator Leon Joosen, and colleague composer, Lanny Meyers.

Mission: We will show some of our current projects but also post some of our vintage work from our inception to last year!

It's Still Me!

Last week Avi Golden came up to Buzzco to thank us for making the movie. He has been living with aphasia for 10 years and communicates very effectively-- both with words and gestures, and charmed us with his upbeat personality. He has been presenting powerpoint demonstrations about aphasia and just included us in his latest one! Thank you Avi!!

Nora York, Singer Who Fused Forms, Dies at 60

It is with great sadness that I found out about the death of Nora York, A remarkable singer, songwriter and performer and a wonderful friend. She was the voice of our 2000 independent short, "Nothing At All" and in 2005 we made a little web music video for her 'What I Want." Rest in peace, dear Nora, at 60 they took you away far too soon. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/09/arts/music/nora-york-dead.html

A performance artist as well, Ms. York layered philosophy, poetry, politics and song when she appeared before an audience.
