Oscar and Emmy Award-winning visual effects mastermind Phil Tippett is currently working on a third installment of his stop-motion series MAD GOD, fully funded by Kickstarter. MAD GOD Part 1 earned a mind-blowing $124,156, surpassing its pledged $40,000 goal to bring it to life and proves it’s a project that fans yearn for.
For those unfamiliar, read more about MAD GOD below:
Mad God is an experimental, hand-made, animated film, set in a Miltonesque world of monsters, mad scientists, and war pigs.
Directed by legendary visual effects and stop-motion craftsman Phil Tippett, the sets, creatures, effects and spirit are, in every way, independent and created from the heart. Sometimes that heart is bursting with love for the craft, while other times it’s punctured and bleeding all over the place… 24 frames per second.
MAD GOD is a mature film made with technology that spans the history of cinema.
