Bill Plympton's next animated feature, “Cheatin,” launches a Kickstarter campaign.
Bill Plympton's next animated feature Cheatin' is now on Kickstarter. Cheatin' is Plympton's seventh animated feature, and the first to be done in a hand-painted style.
Cheatin' is an animated adult tale of love, jealousy, revenge, and murder – full of nudity and violence, but also with Plympton's classic surreal sense of humor. The story is inspired by the work of James M. Cain (Double Indemnity, The Postman Always Rings Twice) with a loose, impressionistic style that has never been seen before in his films.
With over 40,000 drawings to be colored, the project has an editor, composer, and sound designer, and a projected completion date of September 2013.
For more details about the project, check out the Cheatin’ production blog, which details a different aspect of the animation process in each episode.
