Tales of Mere Existence: “Random Observations About Sex” & “Sick of This”
DIRECTED BY LEV YILMAZ
USA, 2011, 6 MIN
Past FFF multiple Audience Award-winner Lev from San Francisco returns with two more one-of-a-kind commentaries on sex, relationships, and the state of things: “Random Observations About Sex” and “Sick of This.”
Lev Yilmaz (Tales of Mere Existence: “Random Observations about Sex” & “Sick of This”) began the ultra low-budget comic/animation series in 2003, based on gleefully embarrassing thoughts and stories from his own life. He self-published three comic/animation sets and had already gathered a substantial cult audience when his YouTube channel exploded in 2007, and he has accumulated 35 million video views as of January 2012. His first graphic novel Sunny Side Down was published in 2009.
