To Do List

An animated musical take on the frustrations of an unending to-do list as experienced by one mom (not helped much by the antics of her little dog).

Writer/director/producer: Jenny Breukelman

Director’s statement

Jenny Breukelman says:

“I originally created the song To Do List to express the overwhelming sense I felt as a single mom of two children, trying to keep it all together and staying creative at the same time.

The seemingly unending amount of things to do inspired me to make a little animation to go along with the song so I created this piece with the cooperation of our little (slightly evil) dog and added yet one more project to my to do list.”
