|The Chromium Hook
James Stanger, 36:45, 35mm (shown on video)
An urgent news bulletin warns a young couple, parked at passion point, that a one armed lunatic has just escaped from the insane asylum. Tires squeal. A loud thud and a blood-curdling howl is heard. Colorful characters from the lovely town of Nimrod help us discover the truth of what took place that fateful night. Full of twists and oddities reminiscent of Twin Peaks.

|Moving Illustrations of Machines
Jeremy Solterbeck, 9:35, animation, 35mm (shown on video)
A surreal look at a mechanical world where human eggs are genetically reprogrammed by ominous machines. It shows the beauty of simple motion and repetition, and attempts to blur the line between organic and man-made “machinery”.
Jeremy Solterbeck, 615 5th Ave, San Francisco, CA 94118-3914
Don Hertzfeldt, 9:30, 35mm (shown on video)
“In the spring of 1999, the Family Learning Channel commissioned animator Don Hertzfeldt (BILLY’S BALLOON, LILY & JIM, GENRE, AH L’AMOUR - MCF -99) to produce promotional segments for their network. The cartoons were completed in five weeks. The Family Learning Channel rejected all of them upon review, and they were never aired...”

9:00 - GOD MADE MAN
|God Made Man (world premiere!!!)
Crazy Pete, 88:00, 35mm (shown on video)
Imagine if Robert Altman had decided to make KENTUCKY FRIED MOVIE instead of SHORT CUTS. In a hip, swingin’, tacky 70’s TV world full of offensive humor, lame commercials and laugh tracks, a trendy corporation serves as the centerpiece in this “story” about a donut delivery boy with a crush and a deep-fried hand, a new flavor of coffee, a CEO in a rocky relationship with the devil, a glue-maker with a rodent fetish, a diaper-clad Blaxploitation superhero called The Baby, swinging couples on a double date, and their radio-addicted catatonic children.
