broken dog, north london, 27/11/10



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)

three-dimensional (3d)

Atomic Hubbub 3D

The Black Dog's Progress 3D

Dry Lips 3D

Bows & Arrows 3D

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...
