In 2006, Dennis Nyback and Anne Richardson, Damon Eckhoff and Mack McFarland formed the Celluloid Combine and created an interactive walking tour through Portland as part of PICA’s TBA:06 Festival.

Participants were able to download videos onto their phones (normal now, unique then) and walk to places of significance.

The Celluloid Combine also organized an All Night Caravan, a traveling film show through town.

One year later, Richardson and Nyback would form the Oregon Cartoon Institute as an LLC.
