Cakeaters – An animated film too weird to live

31 Jul

These are some images from my animated film called Cakeaters. I like the stills better than the film as a whole. At a New York screening of the film I had my worst but most educational artistic experience. Seeing something that you spent nearly three years making being quickly disregarded and judged (rightly) on the merits of it as a film was eye opening (even gut wrenching). Leaving the screening I felt bizarre. It was as if I had never seen the film. The deafening silence spoke volumes about the films snail paced timing and limited animation but also taught me that in the end, a film’s primary goal is to entertain. Even when you are bludgeoning your audience with a frightening truth, you must make it look good. I may be too hard on myself. Check out the animation and judge for yourself at:
