Short of Expectations
Chief, Your Butt's on Fire from Steve Moore on Vimeo.
Two years ago, I finished a short film called, "Chief, Your Butt's on Fire". I wrote about it in FLiP as my wife, Donna, submitted it to umpteen film festivals. Thousands of dollars in entry fees later, we had what can be only described as a flop. Only two festivals picked it up.
Was the film that bad?
When I started working on this short, Disney still did hand drawn animated features. By the time I finished, chipping away at it in my spare time over many years, the animation world had changed completely. Festivals were not even accepting film anymore.
So maybe my little film was too old fashioned for today's scene. Or maybe it just sucks. At any rate, here it is, decide for yourself.
