dinomonster’s animated short "Corporate Whore" finalist at SXSWclick Festival
I am very excited to announce that Contributing Notetaker A.M. Peters' short film Corporate Whore is a finalist in the 2007 SXSWClick Festival, a year-round initiative created to showcase short-form storytelling via mobile devices and the web presented by South by Southwest (SXSW) Conferences & Festivals.
Corporate Whore is one of 15 finalists in the festival, and one of three finalists in the “Animate It” category. To view Corporate Whore, got to http://sxswclick.com/watch/corporate_whore/ and to vote for it in the Popularity Contest, go to http://sxswclick.com/vote/. You can vote once daily until midnight on Friday, July 27th. Jury winners in each of the five categories, including the Grand Jury Prize winner, will be announced August 1st.
Corporate Whore is a stop-motion animated short film that tells the story of a female professional. Strictly crafted with elements found in an office setting such as PowerPoint slides, photo copies and fluorescent lighting, this film is perfect for when you’re feeling penciled in.
Peters’ first foray into stop-motion animation was with her 2005 Two Boots Pioneer Theater Short Film Slam winning Jack Quack: The Path. The short also made its way around the festival circuit including Indie Memphis and was also a finalist on Kevin Smith’s MoviesAskew.com.
Peters is currently in post-production on NO Cross, NO Crown, a timely and engaging feature documentary that examines whether New Orleans’ music and culture will survive the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
dinomonster films is Peters’ indie film banner, which produces feature films and documentaries, as well as music and corporate videos offering a fresh style and perspective on characters and culture. Peters also worked as the assistant to Academy Award®-nominated director Nanette Burstein (On the Ropes) on her upcoming documentary American Teen for A&E Indiefilms.
