animated short film based on the life of Joe Ball.
Written and Animated by Teppei Ando with music by Evan Kertman
Corpus Delicti tells the true story of Joe Ball, known legendarily as the Alligator Man of South Texas. In the 1930s numerous town folks were reported missing. Many attributed their disappearances to Joe's hungry gators, though he promised that they were professional entertainers only. The truth threatens to unravel when Deputy Sheriff Gray and his partner Deputy Klevenhagan begin their investigation of this strange case.
The Darkly Comic short film, Corpus Delicti, is the first collaboration by writer/animator Teppei Ando and composer Evan Kertman.
