The Passenger is the result of about six years spent in a bedroom with a computer. It began in 1998 as a proposed showreel piece, but then escalated into an unstoppable monstrosity that continued to absorb my life (and savings) until 2006. I created all sound, music and vision for the film. Running time is 7 minutes. The film premiered and won Best Animation at the 2006 Los Angeles International Short Film Festival, ahead of 38 other selected shorts including the 2007 Oscar winner. It was subsequently selected to accompany the Oscar nominated shorts in a theatrical tour of the USA, and has screened at a number of international film festivals including the Melbourne International Animation Festival, where it was awarded Best Australian Film.
