Did you say “GIMME MORE STOP MOTION ANIMATION, POR FAVOR!”?

Can do.

Tropfest, the largest short film festival in le worlde is holding a 6-second #tropvine competition prior to opening for entries for the real deal… and there’s $5k on the line.

Yes please.

After the wild success* of the Winning Formula title sequence which saw Klaus and I become professional** stop motion animators, I thought I should give the method another crack. We found an appropriate dad joke, I printed and cut out a bunch of animals, took a ton of photos, recorded Klaus and myself doing the dialogue then edited it down and… Voila!

* We really liked it.

** Yeah, you heard. Professional.

UPDATE: My Vine has been honoured as a part of the [official selection] for the #tropvine festival (aka the worlds shortest short film festival!) Woohoo! See all you legends at the festival this coming Wednesday 12 August in Potts point!

UPDATE UPDATE: YOU GUYS, I WON!?

From the vault: Going for Gold

With all of this hoo haa surrounding the upcoming 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia and the recent announcement that Tokyo will be the host of the 2020 Olympic Games for the second time; I thought I’d post something relevant. And frankly, I froth for the Olympics and our little Aussie rippers going for gold.

Here is a short film Anna and I shot last year shortly before the 2012 London Olympic Games as a part of the Banjacks and Pervis series.

By coincidence it had a few similarities of the 2012 Absolutely Fabulous episodes aired shortly after we shot it. We were jazzed as the eternally hysterical Jennifer Saunders is our creative role model and this basically proves that our minds are one.
