In The Gaiden of Geekdom

"You can't expect someone to be able to work with no time off or no enjoyment." That's the message that the Eizouken club advisor stresses to the kids as they come up against creative burnout. We take a mini-rest this week with a 71-minute movie full of beautiful painted backgrounds and the slowest dialogue cadance imagineable. Despite how chill this indie movie seems, it took more than 7 years of work from concept to creation with the director's committment to "rotoscoping without a rotoscope." Also we talk about laying on the floor a lot.
