Spencer Susser on his Tropfest-winning Shiny

14 February 2016 3:23 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Spencer Susser last night.

American filmmaker Spencer Susser has a long history in Australia.

He was camera operator on Nash Edgerton's shorts Lucky, Spider and Bear, and collaborated with David Michôd on I Love Sarah Jane, a zombie short starring a pre-Alice Mia Wasikowska, and on his feature debut, Hesher, starring Joseph Gorden-Levitt.

Since then he's directed an episode of the TV show Hemlock Grove, and made several shorts - one of which took out Tropfest's top prize last night.

Shiny is a brief (less than four minutes) stop-motion animation Susser made with fellow Los Angeleno Daniel 'Cloud' Campos, a former dancer who toured with Madonna and is, according to Susser, "quite a well known B-boy".

The pair met through a mutual friend, Australian director Michael Gracey, and discovered a shared "let's-go-make-stuff gene", said Susser.

"Originally Cloud and I had made a stop-motion commercial for a big cool company »
