In the 80s, Larry LeTan took punches, falls and bullets for Arnie, Sly and the other action movie bigshots. It was the life he was born for. However, with the introduction of CGI, Larry now finds himself on the outside of modern movie-making.

This is his tale: an awesome 4-minute short called Crash Bang Wallow: The Ballad of Larry LeTan, ex-Stuntman. It’s funny, poignant and the animation is great. Click on through to watch.

The film is currently part of the Cannes Short Film Corner and the 6th NFB Short Films Online Contest. There are a whole bunch of other shorts there, watch them all, vote for your favourite. Make an afternoon of it.
