A rookie CIA agent on his very first field assignment. Walter Beckett, our bumbling hero, receives a high tech spy briefcase while in Washington D.C.. Trouble begins when a curious pigeon gets trapped inside the gadget-ridden briefcase and begins to wreak havoc on Walter and nearby pedestrians. The chaos is nearly halted by our hero, until the pigeon manages to hit one last control, launching a nuclear missile that Walter must stop before it reaches its destination.

Pigeon Impossible, animation tells a spy parody
20 September 2009 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Shorts are the door to access to movies; is a fight against time that you have to win by knock out. Shorts also show the goals of the new generation of filmmakers, and certainly are a great source of ideas, fresh narrative, and an inspiration for many directors. Martell chooses animation; an expression that besides having ideas, you have to show a great technique, and express it through hours, and hours of work. Pigeon Impossible has many of those virtues; is a satire of spy stories, with a great sense of humor. I tasted this short in 33o Montreal World Film Festival, honored as best short by the jury -besides many other recognitions- and I was very pleased to discover that this work is one of the most creative shorts of 2009. The animations shows with great technique camera moves, rhythm, music, story, and a cinematographic language according to an orthodox way of telling stories: In 6 minutes takes the spectator from presenting characters, to a climax, and then surprising ending... and the most important: In a very amusing way! Congratulations to young Austin Texas filmmaker Lucas Martell…you have stories to tell, and you also know how to tell them...even in 6.12 minutes. You have a great future! Leopoldo Soto
