Crime: The Animated Series - Nelson George (Alix Lambert, Sam Chou | 4 min.)
Writer and culture critic, Nelson George, talks about his childhood, the nature of crime, and the state of Hip Hop in the year 2008.
From bank robbers to cops to victims to observers, Crime: The Animated Series explores how crime affects us all. The series is dark, compelling, heartbreaking, and yes – sometimes funny. Each episode is approximately 3 minutes and features the work of a different animator/designer who brings their own personal style to the series, while the series as a whole maintains a cohesive look through it’s limited red, black and white color palette.
Filmmaker, author, and artist Alix Lambert’s ongoing investigation into the world of crime includes hundreds of collected interviews she has conducted with criminals, law enforcement, victims, and observers of crime in the world we live in. Using excerpted audio from these interviews and teaming up with animation director and filmmaker Sam Chou of Style5.tv In Toronto, Lambert and Chou have developed a series of short animated episodes, which through a variety of voices, illuminate the criminal world and paint a complex portrait of who we are as people.
Always surprising and intimate Crime presents a collection of unique perspectives on a subject that has captivated though-out time.
