“Gum” by Noam Sussman

Move over, Bazooka Joe! Welcome to the latest–and possibly most outrageous–selection in this year’s Cartoon Brew Student Animation Festival: Gum by Noam Sussman of Canada’s Sheridan College. A mere sixty seconds, Gum begins with a bizarre premise and keeps building. Filmmaker Sussman topps (pun intended) every scene with an even funnier one using zany drawings, assured staging, and a “what-did-I-just-see” attitude, making this a whole bunch of politically incorrect fun.

    Yeeeeaahh Noam! I still love this as much as when I first saw it. The shot of the mini-doctors moving along on their faces is my favourite part.

    The music sounds like one from a film I saw years ago in college.

    All works of entertainment should be confined exclusively to this style
