The Jock­strap Raiders

The full video of the Stu­dent Acad­emy Award win­ning Ani­ma­tion “The Jock­strap Raiders” is now avail­able to view online. Five years in the mak­ing, this was a labor of love for direc­tor Mark Nel­son. The film became his Mas­ters the­sis project at UCLA.

The Jock­strap Raiders is a Stu­dent Acad­emy Award win­ning ani­mated short film about a group of mis­fits dur­ing world war I. It takes place in Leeds, Eng­land where our heroes are all excluded from the war due to var­i­ous abnor­mal­i­ties. Threat­ened by the invad­ing Ger­man Kaiser and his army, they must learn to become a team and over­come their defi­cien­cies in order to save Britain, and the world.

Com­pleted at UCLA, it is Mark Nelson’s MFA the­sis project. The short has won many awards, includ­ing: Stu­dent Acad­emy Award; Best Ani­ma­tion, British Ani­ma­tion Fes­ti­val; Best Ani­ma­tion Macon Film Fes­ti­val; Best Nar­ra­tive Short GI Film Fes­ti­val; Audi­ence Award Orlando Film Festival.
