The Chaperone 3D
The Chaperone 3D is a short hand drawn animated documentary that was presented at the TIFF festival in September 2013. 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.
The Chaperone 3D tells the true story of a lone teacher who is chaperoning a middle school dance in 1970s Montreal, when it is invaded by a menacing motorcycle gang. The Chaperone 3D recreates the scene using hand drawn animation, miniature sets, puppets, live action Kung Fu and explosions all done in stereoscopic 3D.
