New Animated Film in Pre-Production

Postby dogglebe » Mon Mar 07, 2011 7:58 am

British Academy Award winning animator, Tony White, has started a new feature-length animation - entitled Bad Penguin.

The goal: to re-energize the genre of traditional animation, and bring to the screen a new feature film, animated in the style of classic Disney/Warner Brothers films. Production of the film will also provide apprenticeship opportunities to new and promising animation talent; sorely missing since the early days of Disney.

Geared to more mature audiences, Bad Penguin is a black comedy about a blind street musician who befriends an angry, armed-to-the-teeth penguin who wishes to teach the world how it feels about Christmas.

For a better grasp of the story, imagine what would happen if Bugs Bunny and Quentin Tarantino had a baby...

To raise money for this project, we are using, a site that helps raise funds for artistic projects such as this. Pledges are eligible for several enticing awards: including signed and numbered posters, copies of the storyboards and original artwork from the finished piece (potential collector's items in the making).

Animatedly yours!

Just a little update, here. In the three weeks since we put BAD PENGUIN in, we've raised half the money we need to produce our trailer.

In this time, we've added some more gifts, including Tony White's first three books on animation, signed by Tony himself.

Please visit and help give this Penguin flight.
