SYNOPSIS

Fritz Gets Rich 2006 dir. Eddie White, James Calvert (12 mins)

"When Fritz's first tooth falls out he wakes to find a shiny one-dollar coin beside his bed. Fritz's first encounter with money ignites his entrepreneurial spirit, and from that moment on everything changes. He quickly spirals into a life of dark and twisted moneymaking ventures, where nothing is safe from being sold: even his own emotions. Fritz is a darkly comic cautionary tale warning of the dangers of consumerism and entrepreneurial greed." Screen Australia

The Meek 2015 dir. Joe Brumm (7:26 mins)

Peleda 2013 dir. Nathan Jurevicius, Luke Jurevicius (17:45 mins)

"Two unlikely heroes, Mina and Valdis save the fantastical world of Peleda from the clutches of Giltine, Queen of the Owls” Vishus Productions

Daffodil 2020 dir. Jonathan Daw, Kasia Tons (3:07 mins)

"Daffodil is a collaborative stop-animation film. It was made over many months during 2019 using a purpose built set, and meticulously animated by Jonathan Daw. The sound scape was created by audio engineer and musician Jeremy Conlon in 2020. The film began as a short project for the sake of collaboration but turned into a more complex work with the story line inspired by contemporary screen addiction and the ancient myth of Narcissus." Kasia Tons

The Elephant’s Garden 2013 dir. Felix Colgrave (4:25 mins)

"This animation is a response to and contributes to the genre of psychedelic animation. It displays influences from the work of George Dunning (Yellow Submarine) and Bruno Bozzetto (Allegro Non Troppo). The research of the genre by the artist is a contemporary homage or reinterpretation of the 1960's genre of psychedelic animation. Having been exhibited and awarded as such a work it establishes itself as an important record of that genre in the contemporary context. In fact it's clear retrogressive position is the beginnings perhaps of a resurgence of that genre. Contribution This work continues the practice based research of Mark Lycette in the collaboration with students and production of animated digital works exploring the questions; How are previous genre reinterpreted for new audiences and does it indeed have an audience? Does this reinterpretation form a new genre or is it homage? How are younger artists engaging with past genre in their work? The work also signifies a change in his career path as it is the first Production credit that has achieved significant success. Significance International and local audiences and peer reviewers have identified this work and its exploration of genre as significant. The judges at the Annecy festival awarded the work the Anima-J College Award at Annecy 2014: "A collection of moments from a psychedelic wilderness, each exploring the role of death in a thriving ecosystem." A glimpse into a uniquely psychedelic Garden Of Eden - evolution's (very) alternative universe." Melbourne International Animation Festival

Carnivore Reflux 2005 dir. Eddie White, James Calvert (7 mins)

"In their lifetime, the average meat-eating human will consume ten cows, half a tonne of fish, 760 chickens, 37 sheep and 42 pigs." Screen Australia

Killer Cuisine 2020 dir. Robert Stephenson (2:10 mins)

"A fish sings about the ‘joy’ of garbage in the ocean. An animated cut out style to a retro ‘follow the bouncing ball’ sing-a-long." Robert Stephenson

Throat Notes 2020 dir. Felix Colgrave (8:23 mins)

"A little story about the backyard critters you might see in Tasmania, and the things they might be doing." Felix Colgrave
