Homebrewed Animated Feature Goes to Sundance

January 30, 2007

M dot Strange is the director of the beautifully bizarre movie “We are the Strange”, a film that just made its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. M dot animated the film in his apartment over the last three years, mixing stop-motion, CGI, and 8-bit graphics to create an effect he calls “Str8nime”.

Over the last six months, M dot video blogged about the end of his production, culminating in the release of his trailer and his acceptance to Sundance. He built up an impressive and devoted audience that are salivating to watch his feature in its entirety.

So far I have only seen the trailer, but it is incredibly engaging. I’ve never seen anything quite like it. M dot has says that if he doesn’t secure distribution he’ll release the film onto the web himself.

For an in-depth look into the making of the film be sure to check out the official site and M dot’s blog.

Here’s the trailer.
