Chris Sullivan Shorts Collection

Chris Sullivan is one of the rawest and most authentic voices in animation today. He is a master of a variety of hand-made animation techniques and seamlessly switches between them as he follows his own sense of dark humour down the various under-lit pathways that it drags him along. His films can be shocking and hilarious in equal measure - they are soft acid, bitter sugar and bright colours in the shade. The breadth and depth - the pure deliciously spicy malevolency - of Chris Sullivan's various targets pour forth in a kind of lumpy fluidity in his short films and we have a selection of his finest work PLUS a 10 minute sneak peak of the feature he is currently working on.
