Holy Fuck 'Neon Dad' by Scott Cudmore
Scott Cudmore teams up with Holy Fuck to tell this slight reworking of a Biblical Epic.
Based on the story of David and Goliath, we follow David as he brings home his trophy, Goliath's head, much to the delight of the local villagers. Except that the local villagers, in this case, are the residents of modern day LA. The story quickly morphs into a sprawling character study on the trappings of fame, with David carrying the head with him to all manner of parties and social gatherings. And over 12 minutes we watch the rise, and fall, and rise of a familiar character in a new context.
Stylistic choices such as the use of various camera formats, coupled with the strange-yet-perfect bright blue letterboxing throughout and the headache-inducing strobing over the end credits (you've been warned) make this an unique longform video piece.
"Definitely a labour of love project for us, a lot of good will and generosity on the part of the crew went into the making of this. It was shot over two days in LA with barely any money, especially as it was a Canadian production shooting in the US, so the dollar took a huge hit in the exchange alone. "
