"That Is NOT A Good Idea!" wins 2016 Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Children's Video
Short film based on the book by Mo Willems Directed and animated by Pete List
Produced by Paul R. Gagne and Mo Willems
Weston Woods Studios, Inc.
"Pete List brilliantly directs and animates this cinematic wonder that expertly incorporates classic silent movie elements. A superlative score by Lucas Elliot Eberl and the dynamic voice work of Mo and Cher Willems, supported by an exuberant gaggle of young voices, evoke the feeling of melodrama and suspense."

With Beatbox Baaja, Pete combines the sounds of human beatbox (percussion sounds made with the human mouth) and the shahi baaja (an Indian electric instrument based on the Japanese taishogoto) to create a unique lyrical modern world music aesthetic.
