FF fave short TREEVENGE makes it to SUNDANCE!!!
When the respectable programmers' backs were turned, jarring, jolting and rampagingly awesome horror/comedy short TREEVENGE made it into the celebrated Sundance Film Festival!! Not sure exactly how this happened, but it certainly somehow proves or disproves the existence of God.
One of the top honored shorts of FF 2008, TREEVENGE is directed by Jason Eisener, a young, rabid visionary Canadian filmmaker that we've been huge fans of since his HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN trailer ventilated our foreheads a couple years back:
Since then, Eisener has provided no shortage of similar brilliance, from TREEVENGE to his amazing FF bumper "REPORT CARD":
Yes, this boy's going places. And we'll be down on our knees worshipping him when he gets to the top, especially if the rumors are true about his epic feature film HOBOS WITH SHOTGUNS. Holy moley.
So sincere congratulations to you, Jason Eisener! Here he is with some holiday well-wishings along with some of his cronies. That's him at the top left, plotting your demise.
