Storyline

The Chaperone tells the true, previously untold story of a lone school teacher who fought off an entire motorcycle gang while chaperoning a middle school dance in a church basement in 1970s Montreal, Canada. Told from the first person unscripted perspective of the school teacher and DJ who were there that night, The Chaperone recreates the whole scene using hand drawn animation, miniature sets, puppets, live action Kung Fu and explosions all done in stereoscopic 3D. With over 10,000 hand drawings (many of which were colored in crayon by hand), an original blaxploitation score and featuring a cast of over 200 people, The Chaperone is an unconventional approach to documentary shorts.

Didn't know what to expect from this short cut.

What a brilliant piece of work!

Interesting story (unknown to most Montrealers) supported by an excellent narrator and a great upbeat soundtrack.

You want kung fu? Puppets? They've got it all.

No wonder The Chaperone was the runner up in the short cuts category at TIFF!

Very creative and entertaining.

A must-see.

Expect great things from the Thoroughbread Pictures team.
