Warpfilms has a new site. Highlighting an initial roster that is determinedly unclassifiable, featuring as it does projects by Shane Meadows, Chris Morris and Chris Cunningham, the site is now geared up to feature updates on these projects where news has been traditional sparse. In particular look for more information on Chris Cunningham’s feature development, and shorts, Rubber Johnny, and Spectral Musicians.
Rubber Johnny synopsis from Warpfilms site:
“Rubber Johnny documents a 16-year-old, inbred mutant’s solitary existence, locked in a pitch-black basement by his ashamed parents. They are TV addict rednecks who occasionally feed Johnny and yell at him for making noise. Johnny’s only company in the basement is his little dog. His dog’s I.Q. far outstrips Johnny’s, who is a completely insane, bi-polar imbecile. This abstract short film directed by Chris Cunningham and music by Aphex Twin is scheduled for release late in 2004.”
