SUNDANCE - ANIMATIONS 3

More successful animations from the Sundance Film Festival...


Doc Ellis

Dock Ellis & The LSD No-No by James Blagden (2010) (US) (5m)

Doc Ellis, who died in 2008, was a baseball player for the Pittsburgh Pirates and is probably best known for throwing a 'no-hitter' or 'no-no' (a good thing!) against San Diego in 1970 and later admitting that he had thrown the 'no-no' while under the influence of the hallucinogen LSD. It is this now infamous incident that he narrates himself to a drug-fuelled backdrop in this engrossing Sundance animation.


Karma Ghost

Karma Ghost by Billy Blob (2002) (US) (4m) *

Karma Ghost won the Online Film Festival Viewers Award at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival. It is an amusing, dialogue-free animation following a man who goes about his business with a total disregard for others - but every wrong he does sees another Karma Ghost added to his guilt. Billy Blob (which must be a pseudonym) disappeared after this film.


Bats

The Bats by Jim Trainor (1999) (8m) (US)

A bat narrates his life story in this somewhat bizarre animation from American animator Jim Trainor. The bat lives near a Mayan temple in a cave in the 14th century. He prays to God and enjoys sex with many female bats (explicitly shown). A female God speaks to him, and defacating, drinking water, eating worms, and sex bring the bat happiness. But extinction looms for his species!
