Rocket Pants

Institute History

  • 2001 Sundance Film Festival


In the film, a giant flying Elvis contends with his bizarre and beautiful environment. The 3D animation brilliantly illustrates an other-worldly landscape in which the twisted adventures unfold. Rocket Pants flies gracefully through canyons and stops to rest by the side of a river, where comes face to face with a wicked worm.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
