"Striving to make the greatest animated film of all time, visionary and acclaimed animator Richard Williams (Who Framed Roger Rabbit) toiled for more than a quarter of a century on his masterpiece -- only to have it torn from his hands. Filmmaker Kevin Schreck has woven together mind-blowing animation, rare archival footage, and exclusive interviews with key animators and artists who worked with Williams on his ill-fated magnum opus to bring this legendary story to the screen. A tale of art, obsession, and dreams, Persistence of Vision is the untold story of the greatest animated film never made."
There's still more! I am going! And not just because I was one of the original Kickstarter backers for this project and want to see my name on the credits on the big screen, either! (Well, maybe just a little!) Why not come and join me? Comicoz has limited tickets to the event! Give me an email if you are in Brisbane, available on that date, and are interested in coming... email me at firstname.lastname@example.org First in gets them!
If you would like to get your own tickets (or if Readers of this Blog have beaten you to the tickets offered), you can book for the Brisbane session at the State Library by clicking here. Persistence of Vision will also be screening in Cairns at the Arthouse on Friday August 8th, from 7:30p.m. followed by a Question and Answer session with Kevin Schreck. Information about the Cairns viewing, I am told, is available if you click here.
I know I will be (eventually?) asked to pull this part of my blog down (and I will)... Just before I posted this blog, while searching on YouTube for the above trailer, I found the "full length original cut of The Thief and The Cobbler" that Persistence of Vision was based upon.... Or so the YouTube posting said...
