      • "Jonnie in the Lake TRT: 09:12 © 2016 Frances Barth, a SAG film. A magical experience for 9 year old Jonnie who travels to an underwater city and meets his new friend Azimer. This animation is hand drawn and based on an original script by Frances Barth, with voice over by Ron Nakahara and David Asta, and includes video performance by Valerie Charles.
        "Jonnie in the Lake" involved hand drawing images to animate, roto-scope, and edit a portion of the downtown performance artist Valerie Charles' live performance "DuAnne Does Hollywood" as the new character "Azimer" in this animated video.
