Carnival Picaresque

Get it on DVD for $9.99!

From Director/Animator D. Bradford Greber comes Carnival Picaresque, an experimental short animation. Narrator When a nameless narrator embarks with his compadre on an excursion from the Big Apple to the Big Easy, they are met by a small entourage of likeminded friends for a psychotropic tour of post-Katrina Mardi Gras celebrations. They are mislead by a green fairy into an enigmatic night wrought with danger, dizziness, and dagger-stabbing fun. Salvea A spontaneous juggling contest, where our narrator purloins fantastic drugs from a pair of wiley crones, ultimately seals his fate forever in the potions of permanence.

A masterful arrangement of countless digitally manipulated still photos juxtaposed with psychedelic images and music, Carnival Picaresque utilizes farcical facial expressions and atypical narration to displace conventional story-telling techniques. We, ourselves, become travelers in an exotic locale and actively experience the characters' journey.

ChaseD. Bradford Greber, known previously for his auteur work in the Philadelphia region, this time employs the help of numerous young talents including writer D. Marsteller of Queens, NY, whose short memoir "Zulu Picaresque" was the inspiration for the film; abstract painter Evan Reehl Ryer of Brooklyn, NY; and Native New Orleanians Michael Joseph, whose post-noise jazz creates the score, and costume designer Katie Gelfand, whose colorful costumes bring life to Tom Mustago's mannequin-like portraiture.
