Clint was never what you'd call a 'star student' He was that kid who carried a stack of novels most people have never heard of around from class to class and sat in the back of the room reading them. He had an overactive imagination and referred to himself in the third-person. Most importantly he dared to dream.
When he was knee-high to a grasshopper, young Clint picked up the family camera and started making stop-motion movies with his toys. The resulting body of work stunned his friends and family with the sheer magnitude of their entertainment value. They healed the sick and the lame. They allowed the blind to see once more and they fed his ego...
After finishing school and with no real idea of what to do with himself, Clint started a production company with two partners. This company made many boring and uninteresting things. Occasionally they made something really cool, those projects were usually the ones Clint worked on.
One afternoon Clint decided he was tired of making car commercials and started noodling around with some short film ideas. His muse had re-emerged.
