HORSE GLUE TRAILER

Photobucket

I've put together a wee teaser/trailer for HORSE GLUE. It's over there on youtube.

Click those moving pictures above or here to view the bloody thing.

Possible tagline for the film:
"7 minutes of your life that you will never get back."


EDIT - TwitchFilm post (thanks Todd)

fuck me, it's september

Things I've done recently: helped sell some juice, got ill, finished the new film.

The name of this new film is HORSE GLUE and will have its very first screening at the Ottawa International Animation Festival (the finest of all the festivals!) in October.

It will also have its online premiere over at Animate Projects. Some details here & here, and then more nearer the time.

Speaking of the wonderful Animate Projects may I draw your attention to this new DVD, full of tip top animation that they've commissioned over the last 20 years. Get one now.

And also.... a few new screenings coming up including Atomic Hubbub at Fantastic Fest. Details over there on the right >>

to keep up with current trends we're in the process of retrofitting our entire back catalogue of films in disney digital stereoscopic 3d. I think you'll agree the results really are quite something!
technical note: strap on your red/cyan glasses and enjoy the magic of the third dimension...

it's a little thing I made last year in-between projects. I've only entered it into a few festivals so far mostly because of the amount of time the whole process takes and it's not worth it with this one.
here's something on Short of the Week (thanks andrew).
and previously on the subject here

the new film is getting there. it's being a bit of a bastard. more news coming soon.
