Confusion Through Sand Short Film

Almost a year ago we featured a trailer for a short film called Confusion Through Sand, which was set to premiere at the SXSW Film Festival. The short is hand-drawn on recycled paper, and looks nothing like anything we've ever seen before. Not only that, but the camera movements are amazing. It tells the story of a young soldier "in a hostile desert, scared as hell and trained to react," no doubt referencing the Iraq war. The director tipped me to let me know the short is now available online in full. Suffice it to say, it's a must watch, well worth the wait. One last warning: "this gets loud and intense and may be hard for some people."

Synopsis for Confusion Through Sand from SXSW: "A nineteen year old kid finds himself alone in a hostile desert, scared as hell and trained to react." The short film is 11 minutes in full and premieres as part of the Animated Shorts Competition program at SXSW 2014. Confusion Through Sand is directed by 26-year-old filmmaker Danny Madden, who grew up in Georgia. It's produced by Jim Cummings & Benjamin Wiessner, with sound design by Pete Horner & Danny Madden, starring Danny Madden. It first premiered at SXSW and played at numerous film festivals last year.
