Our film is now playing yay!
Here is an "Animation World Network" article on our project https://awn.com/
And our film's first review just came in too (8.5/10):"...the animation on Cerebus is excellent, making the character stand out starkly against the backgrounds, just like in the comics. Also, the camera angles are great, as is the lighting." "The script and general vibe are slavishly faithful to the comic books. I can’t imagine the godawful changes a more commercial production would have imposed on the adaptation. The Elrod sequence, in particular, is a showstopper" "I have already watched the film three times. I plan to watch it several more" "...movies don’t get much more independent than this"
We also got coverage in Russia - that's a leading animation site in the country. I believe they called our film "a real gem" and "Wildly cool!":)
And in Norway in their third largest Newspaper
And vlogger juggernaut "Comic Tropes" gave us a nice shoutout calling our film a gift and saying that Cerebus is well animated and voiced
I do believe this is the first time a CGI feature has been made with no budget. Over 200 volunteers from around the world since 2006 have been working on the animated film. No crowdfunding or anything.
The animated film is of course based on the comic book "Cerebus the Aardvark", considered by many to have started the indie alternative comic field. It started in 1977 and ran for 300 issues and holds the Guinness World Record for "Most consecutive issues of a comic-book drawn and written by one person", it's creator Dave Sim.
Dave Sim told us there was a 99% chance he would not approve of our film, but against all odds upon finishing the film he gave it a thumbs up. He has previously turned down George Lucas, DreamWorks and Paramount.
The film, "The Absurd, Surreal, Metaphysical and Fractured Destiny of Cerebus the Aardvark", is now playing on the streaming channels "Tubi", "Plex" and Comcast's "Xumo" for free with commercials.

It's also on "Vimeo On Demand" for $0.99 with no commercials
