In Competition

Across the crowded and fast highways of a videogame-esque Los Angeles, we witness a spectacular high-speed chase between the entire LAPD and four loud-mouthed, gun-toting gals on the run. But who is really at the wheel? Director Gamer (nomen omen) displays absolute mastery of CGI animation and special effects, which culminates in a jaw-dropping roller-coaster loop-the-loop sequence.

About the Directors

Philippe Gamer started his career directing commercials before turning his attention to the then-emerging area of digital post-production and special effects. His first short, ‘Gouill & Gar’ (2000) was selected for more than 100 festivals around the globe. Gamer opened his own animation studio, Space Patrol, in 2004.
