Princess Leia’s Slave Outfit Discussed With Dad

Animators The Brothers McLeod have created an animated short based on a recorded conversation between comedian Adam Buxton and his five-year-old daughter.

Lightsaber’s Gone Wild

Damo and Darren – ‘Train Station’

Melbourne based animator Michael Cusack brings us Damo and Darren in ‘Train Station’. The animated short gives us a peak at bogans or train rats as I’m told they are called, which are essentially what we might call hillbilly/white trash here in America.
