A forgotten roadside attraction, trapped in a long-abandoned sideshow, experiences a grainy vision of his past, present and future. 

Director’s Statement: Patrick Neary 

Roadside Attraction No.1 is the first of a series of short animations exploring the idea of a long-forgotten roadside oddity, abandoned in a crumbling peepshow booth. The film makes use of decades-old 8mm home movies and a specialized tilt/shift lens to create a sense of nostalgia in the grim setting. Animation of the six-inch tall character took place over several weeks, utilizing sets I had created for an earlier stop-motion music video.
