Oedipus 2004

 

The story of Oedipus, in 8 minutes, performed by vegetables, in the tradition of Ben Hur. A sword and salad epic, in classic CinemaScope. Featuring a Potato, a Tomato, Broccoli, Garlic, and Billy Dee Williams as the Bartender.

 

TRIVIA: My direction to Billy Dee Williams: “You are the handsomest bell pepper in all of Ancient Greece.”

 

The film took two years, a volunteer crew of more than 100 people, and post production resources donated by Industrial Light + Magic and Skywalker Sound. One of the first stop-motion films shot on a digital still camera (the technology was so new, the Corpse Bride crew stopped by to study our setup). Official Selection: 80+ film festivals on nearly every continent, including Sundance (World Premiere), Seattle (Audience Award), São Paulo, Rome, and Hong Kong. Currently playing on the Sundance Channel and Virgin America Airlines.

 

DVDs are sold out. Signed 35mm anamorphic film prints (of a limited run) are available by inquiry only.
