adventure and absurdity in making an animated short

Tuesday, April 25, 2006


A truely inspiring and wonderful documentary is screening at the San Francisco Film Festival the next couple of weeks called Runners High. It was made by a couple of friends of mine, Justine Jacob and Alex da Silva, about the very noble program Students Run Oakland. I had a very (i mean very) minor roll in helping them shape the story. It was made for little money and it really shows what a couple of people with an idea and the will and hard work can accomplish. Not to mention the subject matter being also about what you can accomplish if you put your mind to it. The film is also going to show at the Hot Docs Festival in Toronto and will be getting into more festivals in the future and hopefully find distribution soon.

Hey, I'm going to be in Toronto this Sunday! I'll try to go see it - tix tend to sell out by now, though.

Btw, I left a comment on your second blog about Mackendrick, rather than reiterate, I'll just bring it to your attention over here. Would love to chat about his work.

Good luck with the film!
