Lance Fever: It's Catching!
Lance Myers animation situation

Congrats are in order for longtime Austin animator and former Gals Panic frontman Lance "Fever" Myers, whose work on Superdeluxe.com we covered way back in January. At the time, Superdeluxe had been engulfed and devoured by Adult Swim, leaving Myers short series The Ted Zone high and dry. Since then, Myers and co-conspirator L.B. Deyo have been hard at work on their squeaky-new animation webiste, TheVideoTwo.com, which features both animated and live-action shorts scrupulously designed to blow your mind.
Now comes word that Myers' short Skip and Lester: Here's the Stapler If You Need It has been chosen to be a part of the Houston Film Commission's 2009 Texas Filmmaker's Showcase, which will include a screening at the L.A. Film Festival on June 26. Woo-hoo, right?
As if that weren't enough to make Myers' summer, um, funner, the animator also sends word that he's signed on with London-based online distribution/representation outfit Future Shorts, which bills itself as "the largest short film network in the world." Three of Myers short films -- Skip and Lester, Subsidized Fate, and (our all-time favorite, check it out after the jump) The Astronomer -- will be officially repped and screened by the online giant. Congratulations Mr. Fever!
