Filling the Tribeca Film Festival’s animation quotient is a film that sounds and looks like nothing we’ve ever seen before. Overseen by filmmaker Chris Sullivan, over nearly 15 years of work, Consuming Spirits presents a suspenseful thriller—about similarly odd newspaper employees living in the Midwest—through a variety of animated techniques.
Included in the film’s smorgasbord of sketchy (pun intended) visual approaches are collages, pencil drawings, and stop-motion animation, all of which, if our instincts don’t fail us, should combine into the type of drawn together storytelling that even Pixar isn’t progressive enough to attempt.
