Greyhound Blues

United States

    Made entirely by hand and animated without digital effects, "Greyhound Blues" explores themes of traveling and childhood while drawing from the visual mythology of 1950s roadside America -- especially where it overlaps with the American Southwest -- and the washed out, photocopied look of early science fiction zines.

    This impressionistic short combines pen-and-ink and watercolor, paint-on-glass direct animation, and completely abstract experimental animation with stop-motion animated paper collage featuring hundreds of cut-outs from vintage magazines, encyclopedias, and repair manuals.

    Original music by Geronimo Getty.
