Voyage of the Damned, a short animated film that simultaneously parodies both the occasionally spineless world of advertising and film noir gangster flicks, serves to introduce The Brotherhood, a Mac-based animation house in Toronto, to the ad industry. Organized less than a year ago, this three-member fraternity is "not looking to do the Cap'n Crunch thing," says writer/animator/director Darwyn Cooke, and one screening of Voyage will assure they probably won't be given the chance. Influenced somewhat by the film GlenGarry Glen Ross, it slowly moves four lugs and a pesky, sycophantish ad-rodent as they cruise through the Adlands, an "elephant's graveyard" haunted by renowned advertising mascots, in their convertible Selldorado.
