Bandit Hill


Director: Scotty Carlson
Origin: USA
Duration: 4 minutes


Bandit Hill is a whimsical adventure through an enchanted forest filled with woodland creatures ready to play! Mountain biker and artist Jill Kintner brings her character drawings to life as they race down Bandit Hill to outrun an onslaught of angry clouds and terribly-behaving weather. Full of mud monsters, happy trees, and fluffy clouds oozing personality, the trio of Squirrel, Fox, and Snail look to Jill to save them from the storm!

This magical, hybrid animation and live action piece brings together one of the world’s top mountain bikers with a far-away land pulled straight out of her imagination.
