{     Who I Am and What I Want     }    

http://www.crowndozen.com/main/archives/upload/2006/10/whoiam-bigger-thumb.jpgIf you have seen Dad's Dead, the acclaimed quintessentially disturbed-British-youth short winner of something like 20 awards, chances are you remember it well and you know who Chris Shepherd is. Because that short is a piece of art beginning to end and it strikes every time for the superb and diverse work applied to every single frame, to narrate such a gritty, ugly story of crime and rage. Well, Shepherd has come out with a new raunchy short, product of the collaboration with cult illustrator David Shrigley. The short is a 30 minutes animation titled "Who I am and what I want", based on a book by Shrigley, and it is a dark, funny, dirty tale narrated by social outcast Pete who goes on telling us his life story. No aspect of his insignificant life, as he deems it, is spared: birth, sh*t-shovelling jobs, non existing love relationships, alcohol and drug abuse, useless medications, overall madness. Sheperd, who in Dad's Dead used a million different effects in just a few minutes, this way goes in a diametrically different direction: animation is completely back to basics but he is still able to mesmerize you. Who I Am and What I Want is in fact a witty, mischievous, anarchic tale, filled with naughty sex moments, seasoned with strictly black and white, simple line drawing, in the style Shrigley is famous for, and the amazing animation and direction of Shepherd. A true little gem.
