Director/animators Syd Garon and Paul Griswold, recently co-directed a music video for the band NASA (North America South America).

Meticulously sampling “Slumdog Millionaire” for its vibrant sounds and images, and reconstructing them into this fast-paced audiovisual remix, Addictive TV were asked by the film's producers to give “Slumdog Millionaire” their unique treatment for an alternative online trailer for the film’s promotional campaign. The award winning movie, directed by Danny Boyle - director of “Trainspotting” and “28 Days Later” - tells the incredible story of a kid from the slums of Mumbai who gets to go on India's "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?".
