Christy Karacas is an American filmmaker and musician well-known as the force behind the animated television show SUPERJAIL! His work feels torn from the pages of underground comix, low-budget hollywood movies, 20th century video games, and halloween punk with an outrageous thrift-store sensibility rarely gracing the airwaves these days. Having emerged from the influential art scene around Providence, RI in the early aughts, Karacas became known for his tightly chaotic hand-drawn animations SPACE WAR and BAR FIGHT, charting a path to a series of equally wild commercial projects. His newest work (the freshly minted tv show BALLMASTRZ: 909) adds more sparkle to his motley crew of cultural touchstone. This is 2019 sports-themed anime exploding from the guts of a post-apocalyptic future on roller skates.
A conversation with Christy Karacas.
