Brother, Can You Spare A Job?


America never was America to me,
And yet I swear this oath–
America will be!


A little propaganda movie from Tom Neely and Greg Saunders, realized in Flash. Slow but enjoyable. Maybe less enjoyable if you’re jobless…

The short tells the story of Melvin McBean and his family’s struggle to make ends meet in Bush’s economy juxtaposing a depression era visual style with modern-day political rhetoric.

Originally a Best Animation finalist in MoveOn.org contest, Bush in 30 Seconds, the commercial spot has been expanded to a seven minute short cartoon.

Tom Neely is a painter, cartoonist, and animator living in Los Angeles.

Greg Saunders is a freelance writer. By “freelance” he means that he isn’t making any money doing it: he writes for free at his weblog The Talent Show.

Breve film di propaganda di Tom Neely e Greg Saunders, realizzato in Flash. Lento ma gradevole. Forse meno gradevole se si è disoccupati…

Il corto narra la storia di Melvin McBean e degli stenti della sua famiglia per arrivare a fine mese in Bushville, unendo lo stile visivo dell’era della depressione, alla moderna retorica politica.

In origina finalista come miglior animazione nel concorso Bush in 30 Seconds di MoveOn.org, lo spot è stato espanso in un cartone animato di sette minuti.

Tom Neely è un pittore, vignettista ed animatore. Vive a Los Angeles.

Greg Saunders è uno scrittore freelance. Per “freelance” s’intende che non ci guadagna una lira: scrive gratis sul suo blog The Talent Show.
