EXCLUSIVE: Here’s first footage from Mad God, the experimental animation 30 years in the making from Phil Tippett, the Oscar winning VFX artist with credits including the original Star Wars trilogy, Jurassic Park, and RoboCop.
After embarking on the first steps of the film during a lull in his schedule after Robocop 2, Tippett paused the project after getting called to work on Jurassic Park, but revisited the idea some 20 years later after finding the original puppets and sets in storage. Together with a volunteer crew of trainee artists, the project was completed.
Mad God premieres on August 5 at Switzerland’s Locarno Film Festival.
