Winner Best Undergraduate Animation - Ottawa International Animation Festival 2010
Suburbia numbs the mind, and rears death within us. I have injected LGFUAD with the eerie discomfort I find within myself, stemming from the obsession I have with the relentlessness and tension that pulses through suburban youth. It is a possession by certain intensities that manifest themselves within the body somewhere between extreme emotion and a complete lack thereof: void. Outlets for these intensities:
1. sexual exploits 2. drugs and alcohol 3. violence 4. x-treme sports
The technique with which I've created the film alludes much to my youth. The act of drawing with crayons and allowing the pigments to dictate the forms is very raw and ritual. I have also realized the potential of the computer age I have grown up into, and have blended these two worlds to create something personal, while still fresh and contemporary.
Through the narrative I have created my own memory for someone: for myself. It is an everlasting limbo where death has no meaning . A static space where the symbols that incarnate our childhoods and the fiendishness of the macabre void we find ourselves constantly moving towards coalesce.
This film is a desperate attempt to relive my own past in a different body, and with a different mind.
LGFUAD :: let's get fucked up and die.
