Storyline

Brendan and Gavin are lifelong friends who feel comfortable with fame and international adoration. Even though they haven’t achieved it yet. They’re just like any other small town guys – they enjoy playing in a band, reviewing book reviews and busting mad sickness whenever they can. They also have brand new jobs in advertising. Unfortunately their world falls apart after they lose their jobs, a day before their ten-year school reunion – a day they’ve dreamt about for, well, ten years. Written by Anon

Trivia

The film was inspired by a series of spots made for MTV as idents to go between music videos. The team behind the project first made them in the hope that MTV would air them at least once, but MTV loved them. They were soon picked up by all the MTV regions in Europe, Canada, South America, Australia and Asia. They even dubbed the spots into German. It wasn’t long before they commissioned more spots, and even flew the guys to London to shoot some “Crazy Monkey in the UK”.

I was hired by David Hillier TheDeliArtistUnited to help create the 2d Animated short at the end of the Feature Film  as the inbetweener, clean-up artist, keyframer, flat colourist, and one of the character designers.

The animated short shows how even in Brendan and Jacks imaginations they end up being losers!
