Based on a true story, EVERYBODY GOES TO THE HOSPITAL is a stop motion animated exploration of physical, psychological, and familial trauma, telling the tale of 4-year-old Little Mata (writer/director Tiffany Kimmel's mother) as she's taken to the hospital in late 1963 with appendicitis.

I was awarded the first-ever Phil Tippett Animation Award, on stage by Phil after the Bay Area premiere of Mad God for my animation and fabrication work on this short.
