Zomg, Snowmobile... of course. I feel ridiculously urban not remembering that term! They used a different term in the film though.. snow scooter perhaps? But then again it was in Norwegian.

It was awesome finally getting to meet and I'm happy to chat at any time. Looking forward to the rest of your coverage :)

Hey Shannon,

Wanted to clarify the Zombie Zombie thing for you. The short is actually a music video for the French techno(?) band Zombie Zombie for their track "Driving This Road Until Death Sets You Free". The whole album is pretty awesome, very reminiscent of Carpenter and Goblin.

Thanks Jay, I was totally confused over the connection there! I was wondering why there was so much footage of the band playing on the screen during the short - but that makes perfect sense. It was one of my faves of the program.
