“The Last 40 Miles,” based on a true story, follows an inmate on his final journey from Texas’s death row in Livingston, to the execution chamber in Huntsville. During the ride, his memories, the scenery flashing by and the unexpected compassion of the guard escorting him keep him company.
The animated and rotoscoped short film is the brainchild of British journalist Alex Hannaford, who teamed up with animators Jeff Roth and Lucas Dimick and producer/cinematographer Meg Mulloy. The group began working together early in 2012, to produce the self-funded project. They have since founded a production company, Onalaska Films.
The film features Austin actors Victor Steele, Gary Warner Kent and Al Dinneen and a score by British songwriter Ben Onono.
The team aims to enter the movie into various film festivals in 2013.
