"Hadacol Christmas," "Francis," and "Susa's Red Ears" are three animated short films by Brent Green with a special live improvised score by Amy Domingues (Garland of Hours), Brandon Butler (Canyon/Boy's Life), Brendan Canty (Fugazi),
and Jim Becker (Califone). "Hadacol Christmas" is a twelve minute story where Santa Claus invents Christmas with a belly full of cough syrup and a head full of dying crows. "Francis" is based on a dream in which an elderly woman at the end of her life taunts the lethargic bears in her backyard into finishing her off. Francis achieves liberation amidst the chaos of a Hollywood press conference, her exploding children, and a kleptomaniac narrator. It was written by Tim Rutili of Califone and animated and directed by Brent Green. "Susa's Red Ears" is a six minute short about a girl with a firetruck in her head. In the film the sun explodes. She doesn't save the world or anything. But she saves herself, mostly.
Brent Green is the recipient of a 2005 Creative Capital grant. He also received a 2005 Pennsylvania Council on the Arts Media Arts Fellowship, administered by Pittsburgh Filmmakers.
