A Model of Root Tip Development

Featured scene is from the eight-minute 16 mm film, marketed to college botany departments. (Note: Original 16 mm film is in great need of restoration)

“My formal education was in the life sciences. Professionally, I have gravitated towards the arts of communication — the key to the unsurpassed success of our intelligent, social species.”

— Doug Drenkow

The Gumfather

A two-minute Super 8 film (just for fun) with apologies to Gumby and The Godfather

Mt. Rushmore

This surviving, Super 8 footage is the comic conclusion to an otherwise serious Bicentennial Salute. (Please be patient; the lighting in the film clip improves as the day of animation, outdoors, wore on) Unfortunately, that and several other films from my younger years have not survived; although one humorous, live-action group production was used by our intermediate school as an orientation film for new students for many years after we graduated!
