Director's Comments

Produced as my Senior Project in high school, Cognizance follows a hitman and his (re)discovery of the beauty in life. Set to Coldplay's Don't Panic, much of the film was animated within the span of two weeks.

NOTE: There is no sound for the first 20 seconds, so don't crank up the volume and blow your ears off.

Cognizance was featured prominently in the October 6, 2007, Wall Street Journal article, "In This Film Industry It Really Helps To Be a Blockhead."
