Bike Ride

by Tom Schroeder

The most inventive seven minutes of film in many a moon – LA Weekly

This film is also available on iTunes.

This freewheeling, free-associative short uses very cool white-on-black animation and a jazz percussion score to tell the heartbreaking story of James Peterson, a guy who rode his bike fifty miles to visit his girlfriend, only to receive a less-than-enthusiastic welcome. It's not a pretty story. Late that night, he rode home again.
