OSCAR SHORTLIST - Chris Landreth's "Subconscious Password"

Chris Landreth
Chris Landreth is a US animator working in Canada. He is best know for his 2004 film, Ryan, which won an Oscar. Some of his other films include "The End" (1995), "Bingo" (1998), "The Spine" (2009).

Chris worked on "Subconscious Password" with both the NFB and the Seneca Animation Program. We'll find out whether "Subconscious Password" becomes a nominated film on January 16, 2014.

In this short animation, Oscar®-winning director Chris Landreth uses a common social gaffe - forgetting somebody’s name - as the starting point for a mind-bending romp through the unconscious. Inspired by the classic TV game show Password, the film features a wealth of animated celebrity guests who try (and try, and try) to prompt Charles to remember the name. Finally, he realizes he will simply have to surrender himself to his predicament.
