Jonas Odell Lies at Sundance

Swedish Animator and Filmmaker Jonas Odell's latest short film has won the Special Jury Prize for Best Short Film at the 2009 Sundance Film festival.

Jonas has been described best as "from another planet" - his creativity has no boundaries and his mixed media aesthetic combined with a sick sense of story telling make him one of my favorite filmmakers of the time. He is represented by production company Filmtecknarna.

You can watch a snippet of Lies on Motionographer, I will try to get a hold of the full film after it runs the festival the mean time check out an excerpt from his previous short, Never Like The First Time. I had the privilege of seeing the film on the big screen at the Res Fest a few years back - enjoy!
