Santa Barbara Film Festival Animation

Few things at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival generate as much chatter as the introduction video, which shows before every movie. This year’s animated version was created by Harry Bossert, a London teenager. Below is the orginal version of video, but Bossert notes, “there were several edits created from this for the trailers, and I changed the ending to feature the SBIFF poster. Parry  re-worked the music, too.”

  1. The guy from Goleta is from a trailer park… a hick… What happened to Santa Barbara, was a beautiful friendly place now…

  2. It’s a clever spoof on some of the past problems getting into movies

    An inspired piece of animation from an exciting young director – great collaboration!

  4. Very mixed feelings about this animation, ranging from it’s horrible to “I love it.” — Not least, it’s usually way too loud so what’s said is not understandable. It’s not exactly accurate, either; passholders do get in first, to be sure, but passholders also can’t get in to a full house if the theater is sold out and they get there late, ie. after the line has started going in.

    The animation is great! But its designed by and for kids. The audience at these movies is a much older and will find it loud. I’ve seen very few passholders under 25 so its off on that important consideration, but again its nice work.

    So lame. Go back to London. It makes no sense, these were issues from two years ago. And I don’t even go to the Festival movies.

    Still hate only now I’ve seen it several more times.
    It’s an assault.

    What a delight. Glad I could watch it at home instead of in a theater with the booming sound. It was probably easier to understand the dialogue. Still didn’t catch everything.
