Sissy-Boy Slap-Party

— 2004


I made this film as part of a teaser campaign to help promote The Saddest Music in the World. I like to think it merely promoted more slapping. Inspiration for the title came from my friend, the author and actor Caelum Vatnsdal, who described to me Sissy-Boy Slap-Party as a game he played frequently with great pleasure and large quantities of salty tears. I kept him on set as a technical consultant to make sure my interpretation of this sport matched his own.
