Kickstart This! Bill Plympton's CHEATIN'

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Oscar winning independent animator Bill Plympton needs your help. Not your actual help, really, he's got skilled people (himself included) on hand to do all the actual work. He just needs your money. Plympton is plugging away on his 7th feature film, Cheatin', he's messing with a new approach to coloring his work and - not being funded by the monstrosity that is Disney or any other such corporate entity - he's looking for help to get this thing over the finish line in a reasonable length of time.

CHEATIN' is an animated adult tale of love, jealousy, revenge, and murder - full of nudity and violence, but also with my surreal sense of humor. The story is inspired by the work of James M. Cain ("Double Indemnity", "The Postman Always Rings Twice"). CHEATIN' marks my 7th animated feature film.

I've always enjoyed using watercolors in my illustrations, and now, for the first time, I can employ my painterly sensibilities to the treatment of my animation. This loose, almost impressionistic style has never been seen before in my films. Thanks to this new aesthetic and a beautiful, full-length musical score, I believe CHEATIN' will be a breakthrough for my career! Unfortunately this style is very difficult and time-consuming to complete.

    Well, I think they stay away from Plympton because he is sorta dark and quirky....well, I like his stuff, hang in there Mr Plympton, your time will come.
    Thanks Mr Brown.
