Animated Shorts Program

7 minutes/US/English / Short Narrative/Animation
Director: John Wardlaw

FLORIDA PREMIERE / Independent Filmmaker*
ABOUT THE FILM: The final performance of the late Jonathan Harris (LOST IN SPACE) highlights this risque and screwy parody of HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS. Harris narrates the tale and plays the mean-minded Bolt who hates the citizens of Scewville because his threads are too tight. Can Cindy Loose Screw find a way to foil his plan to screw Christmas? Harris is joined by his former TV LOST IN SPACE co-stars Bill Mumy, Angela Cartwright and Marta Kristen, who portray the Ratchet family in a quick bonus parody of A CHRISTMAS CAROL.  Source: filmmaker
ABOUT THE DIRECTOR: John Warlaw is an award-winning filmmaker, photographer and musician. After graduating from Santa Barara’s Brooks Institute of Photography in 1993. While directing and editing are his preferred jobs, John has worked in many of the various aspects of film making in features, shorts and music videos. These included sound recordist, sound mixer, composer, writer and even in front of the camera as an actor. In 2001 John decided to return to animation and had the pleasure of working with actor Jonathan Harris (LOST IN SPACE, A BUGS LIFE) who did the fabulous narration and the voice of ‘the Bolt’. As a tribute to Harris, Wardlaw added the voices of Harris’ friends and LOST IN SPACE cast-mates, Marta Kristen, Angela Cartwright and Bill Mumy to the film as well.
Wardlaw lives in Santa Barbara, California, with his wife and four cats.  Source: filmmaker
