The Chaperone 3D
Slamdance Film Festival
Director: Fraser Munden
Could The Chaperone be the most awesome, action-packed, badass short film in the history of time? I’m not gonna say no here. Excellently using a combination of animation, stop-motion, live-action, puppetry and exploding piñatas, The Chaperone tells the “hand drawn true story” of teacher/chaperone Ralph, DJ Stefan and the-kid-at-the-concession-stand Peter as they kick ass and take names after a motorcycle gang invades a Montreal youth dance that they’re watching over. The use of an interview with the real life Ralph and Stefan as the voiceover for the short film only makes it that much more fun. Drop everything you’re doing and find a way to see this amazing and unique piece.
