I have two great pieces of news to report - one is a reminder about the first test screening of my new animated feature, CHEATIN'.
I'm inviting friends, fans and strangers to come see the film and give me their critiques. It's also a wonderful opportunity to see the creative process in action.
You'll get to see the film with rough sound and music. Some parts of the film have not been completed, so part of the story is just told in pencil drawings, which give the film a raw look. It's important that I present the film at this stage to audiences, even though there may some confusion, before I make the final edit. I would hate to show the finished film in festivals and have people all criticize the same weakness in the story. By that point, it would be too late to make changes.
So that's why the test audience is so important. Please help us make a perfect film by coming to the Nitehawk Cinema in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on Tuesday, March 12 at 9:30 pm. There are still a few tickets available. Buy them here:
Also, as you may already know, I animated a second Couch Gag for the opening of "The Simpsons", but it was pulled at the last minute for legal reasons. Well, they've finally rescheduled the new short for this coming Sunday, March 10. So tell your friends to watch for it, and see if you can guess why the spot was pulled.
Talk to you soon -
