HINDMOST - Animated, Jazz, Sci-Fi short Film


DanO from New Mexico Digital here, grateful to again be part of the 2008 Santa Fe Film Festival (SFFF).  I love this festival.  

NM-Digital is pleased to be screening a short animated film called HINDMOST.
See the Official SFFF HINDMOST Homepage for a slideshow and a Behind the Scenes short.
HINDMOST screens with "State of Rock" by Anthony Arkin on Thursday 12/4/08 @ 9:15pm and Saturday 12/6/08 @ 9:30 pm at DeVargas Mall.  The official blrb [sic] :

HINDMOST is a short film about a band called HINDMOST currently on a galactic tour called: 'The One Song Tour'. The band lands their spaceship into a packed stadium, plays one song, then takes off.

Hindmost features brilliantly rendered animations by Jason Harris, and original jazz music written by Dan Otero (Guitar, Vocals) and featuring Colin Darby> (aka Darbstar) from Felonious Groove Foundation on Sax>,Upton Ethelbah from Daffodil and Primate on Bass and Miguel Velasquez from Primate on Drums. Hindmost was inspired by the great guitar jazz compositions of Joe Pass and the scifi masterpiece Ringworld, by Larry Niven

I was really pleased with all the animation and graphic design by Jason Harris.  He's quite a talented animator.  Look for his work on future NM-Digital projects.
Costume, make-up and camera-work was done by my son, Galileo Otero.  How cool is that? And that left all the compositing, audio engineering and acting to be done by Dan Otero (your humble narrator).

Special thanks to Jon, Jules and the entire SFFF crew who would scold me if I didn't remind you of past SFFF entries from New Mexico Digital, which include:
The Troll's Demise (2003);  Zen & the Asteroid (2005) starring Santa Fe's Christopher Norris and Wil Albarez (aka FireHazard); and the famous SFFF 2006 protest video Fairness for Androids and Trolls (F.F.A.A.T.), a mock protest of the 2 former movies.  Good times.
So that's the scoop.  Hope you can catch my movie.  I'll try to catch yours.

Peace \m/
Dan Otero
