Ball Breaker - Ipad film by Ushev and Robinson

Ever wondered what would happen if Buster Keaton made a film about testicular cancer using an iPad?

In late summer 2012, the National Film Board of Canada asked Theodore Ushev and myself to make a quickie film to promote their PixStop Application. We've done better work, but it's okay, especially since we only had 24 hours to put it together. It's a nod to Buster Keaton and my cancer. My son, Jarvis also appears (he voiced some parts in Lipsett Diaries). 

Mostly, Ball Breaker is an excuse to see how cool the NFB's PixStop app is. We made it all on an iPad!
