South Texas Underground Film is pleased to announce a few more Animation Shorts Films selected to screen at the 2015 STUFF Film Festival taking place this November 30 - December 6, 2015 in Corpus Christi, Texas.
‘Dont Do This To Me Now’ – Directed by Jack Fitzgerald – Netherlands/8:37 mins
Satirical ‘newscast’ full of verbal and visual puns in which a maladjusted character tries to understand himself and the world. This leads to a series of sketches ridiculing phenomena of our modern society in encounters and occurrences with a twist. An animation at daggers drawn in very sober lines.
‘The Little Match Girl’ – Directed by Kyoko Yamashita – Brazil/9:13 mins
She is just a child who struggles to survive in the concrete jungle. She was born unwanted, survives in the infamous way and she will die rejected being the way she is. Indigent, dirty and uneducated.
In refuge of the imaginary, she finally finds comforting end.
‘The Animals’ – Directed by Mark Wee – Singapore/6:18 mins
Influenced by the German Expressionist movement of the early 1900s and films by Lotte Reiniger. Adapted from the life of Joseph Merrick, the historically famed Elephant Man who walked the streets of Victorian England, exhibiting himself in freak shows, abused and despised by society for his horrific appearance. Merrick is at his wit’s end when things take a serendipitous turn.
‘Rock is Not an Attitude’ – Directed by Xiaoxiao Tang – USA/5:09 mins
A stop-motion rock band talks about life before their band: Rock is not only an attitude. Our lives are a reflection of our attitudes: just like music, we are all different and unique, but there is no distance between us.
‘Squeak!’ – Directed by Hannah Brown – UK/1:40 mins
A sleepy cat is awoken by her playful puppy pal, and she seeks revenge for her disrupted nap.
