An exciting merger of two animation greats, Mikey Please partnered with long time friend and collaborator Dan Ojari in 2014 to form Hornet directing collective Parabella.

A major animating force behind Please’s Marilyn Myller, as well as the 2011 BAFTA winning stop motion film The Eagleman Stag, Ojari is widely known for his own epic short Slow Derek. The film took on the festival circuit in 2012 and screened at Sundance and Cannes Film Festival, among numerous other international heavy hitters.
