In July, we noted Adam Pesapane‘s efforts to raise funds on Kickstarter for a short film called “Submarine Sandwich“. Pesapane, who goes by the moniker PES, had previously made a splash with “Fresh Guacamole“, which holds the record as the shortest Academy Award-nominated film ever (it runs for just 100 seconds.)
PES ultimately received the $30,000 he asked for, and then some–by its conclusion, his Kickstarter campaign had raised more than $48,000. He quickly got to work on “Submarine Sandwich”, and it can now be viewed on his YouTube channel.
“Submarine Sandwich” has much in common with other PES films. It’s short (just under two minutes), it is animated in a stop-motion style, and it uses common household objects as stand-ins for food. This time, PES takes us to a deli, where sports equipment is put through the meat slicer and onto a literal submarine.
As we’ve come to expect from PES, this is great. You never know–perhaps we’ll be hearing about “Submarine Sandwich” again during awards season.
