Mini-Film Festival #23: BASIS Mesa Comic Con

BASIS Mesa is a charter school in Mesa and I was glad to help provide content for their four hour mini-Comic Con, especially as it was a fundraising event for the school.

As I expected that the audience would be primarily children, I put together a versatile 45m set that would appeal to children but would entertain adults too. It includes cute animations, action, sci-fi, fantasy, steampunk and a children-friendly horror short.

Most are familiar short films to Apocalypse Later mini-film festival audiences, because they're timeless favourites that I know play well to children, but I rejected a couple more because of their use of swearing. I replaced them with a couple of new Creative Commons licensed animations that I got a kick out of.
