SYNOPSIS

Unpacking the darker side of impulse, these animations test the line between ingenuity and avarice.

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)

Directed by Joe Brumm (Bluey 2018 - present) The Meek is a cautionary tale telling of the rise and fall of a worker ant whose desire for more takes him down a dark and lonely path.

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

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

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

A homage to 1960's psychedelia, the Elephant's Garden offers a playful romp through a surreal ecosystem populated by creatures rhythmically going about their day to a trippy soundtrack by Red M.

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
