Extremely Shorts 3
June 24-25, 2000

Juror: Rebecca Campbell of The Austin Film Society

WHAT BOYS WANT Roger Beebe, Durham, NC

Take a Betty doll, a Morningstar meatless griller, a box of colored Sharpies, and a 25-year-old roll of Dupont black-and-white film. Place in a bag and shake vigorously. The result is "What Boys Want," a simple comic portrait of a boy paralyzed by his idiotic desire.

NOIR, Ward Jenkins, Decatur, GA 

Going from only one level with figure drawing and using a simple sketchbook style, I went the exact opposite direction by implementing multiple layers, effects and lush aesthetics for my second film, noir. I used Softimage’s TOONZ software for compositing as well as digital ink & painting, effects and output. Utilizing the multi-layer capacity that digital compositing offers the user, I was able to compose 16 levels for scene two alone without any sort of image degradation.
