a sex change service, animated style
Drive Thru by Jed Bell This animated tale tells of a Drive Thru with a difference, namely one that offers a female-to-male sex change service. And on hand to dispense advice to first-time customers on the pic 'n' mix menu of hormone replacement and surgical choices on offer, is a host, only one not with the most, as this comic short is - just not that comical. Sorry folks, but here the inclusion of a chirping birdie who pops up every now and again, does nothing to add to either the storyline nor any punchline this work may have had.

On the plus side however, the graphics whilst far from Disney standard, nevertheless belie their production, said to be courtesy of a basic paint programme. For this sure is a bright and colourful animated satire of the transgender experience, as we encounter Willie's sexual Drive Thru. Enough said.
screened as part of the 19th London Lesbian & Gay Film Festival 2005
