From talking to a friend over at Tippett, it sounds like an on-the-side project by a few motivated people at the studio, which started right about when I left.
Animate Clay says: “Phil Tippett is getting back into stop motion. He will be ressurecting his shelved film MAD GOD. The theme of the film is where the industrial age butts heads with the age of belief.”
I think it’s totally awesome that they’re doing this and I can’t wait to see more. It’s the kind of project I would have loved to have been a part of. Good luck to everyone involved, I know it’s going to be rad!
