SYNOPSIS

Bunch of Fives: Banjo Frogs, Cell Animation, Lower Orders, Possum’s Rest, Turtle World 1998
dir. Nick Hilligoss (5 mins each)

“Five funny animated films comment ruefully on our relationship with the natural world.” Bullfrog Films

Good Riddance: Rats, Air Pollution, Flies, Snails, Termites 2003 dir. Nick Hilligoss (5 mins each)

“Good Riddance follows the exploits of Eco, the clean, green pest controller with a clever biological solution for every pest problem. But getting rid of pests the clean and green way isn't always easy; sometimes the solutions don't quite work out the way they should. But many times, if the problem is looked at in a new way, it can become part of the solution.

This light-hearted look at thwarted good intentions reminds us that when looking for an ecological solution to a problem, it's good to remember that everything is related.” Bullfrog Films
