British Academy Award winning animator/director, 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...
