About me

I am Jennifer Shiman, creator of 30-Second Bunnies Theatre and developer of other fun entertainment content under the umbrella Angry Alien Productions, LLC.

I love storytelling.

My passion is developing engaging content across multiple platforms.

In 1998, I founded Angry Alien Productions to focus on content development, digital design and production.
I enjoy distributing creative work directly to a global audience. Since 2004, I have created and produced over 95 short cartoons with bunnies re-enacting movies in (approximately) 30 seconds. The award-winning shorts have appeared on broadcast tv, on demand, online and in a global ad campaign.

In 2018 I launched a Patreon campaign to help fund more bunny titles...which has been AWESOME and has resulted in 12 new re-enactments over the last two years! Join as a patron to access exclusive bunny archives, and support me as I work on creating new stuff!

I got my graduate degree in Media Studies in 1994 from the University of London Institute of Education.

I got my undergraduate degree in International Political Economy/International Communication
from the University Professors Program (Boston University) in 1991.
