Leslie Carlsons new short, SHRIMP AND CRAB COCKTAIL, made its debut on Ifilm May 4, 2001. This 2-minute animated short explores the shifting tides of emotion between a shrimp and crab as they flirt in an undersea cocktail lounge, with a dark twist to the old line "there are other fish in the sea."

WHITE BREAD BLUES, a new animated Web series from the San Francisco office of interactive design and production company Deepend, debuts this week. Featuring Cody and Gunter, two shameless deadbeats, the series is set in a trashy desert trailer park. Amid the roar of muscle cars, the grind of heavy metal, and the vulgarity of drunken bikers, there is a world of people who take the bad life to a new low. You can find this new series at www.whitebreadblues.com.
