If you’re in the mood for a delicious buffet of animation styles then tune in to A Liar’s Autobiography tomorrow night at 10 on BBC4. We did a section of the film along with 13 other animation studios. We recommend listening to the audio description version for the visually impaired. Those people are THOROUGH, they called us up to ask which film inspired the “giant cock and balls” photo in our Ibiza montage section.

Last night we went to see a preview of “A Liar’s Autobiography” the film based on the life of Graham Chapman from Monty Python. It’s entirely animated and in stereoscopic 3D. It was made by 13 different animation production companies in London and the US. We spent lots of last year working on a little 7 minute section of it. You can read more about the film here. It’s certainly worth seeing if you’re a huge Monty Python fan.
Here’s a link to a little piece about Trunk by the Graham Chapman Project guys. We’re probably just over halfway through animating our 7 minute section. It’s a LOT of hand drawn animation, so far we’ve gobbled up four animators and 6- yes SIX interns. Yum yum.
We are super excited to reveal our newest project. Trunk Animation has been chosen along with 12 other animation companies to work on “A Liar’s Autobiography” an animated feature film based on the autobiograhy of Monty Python’s Graham Chapman. The film is based on a recently recovered audio cassette of Graham Chapman reading from his autobiography, a script was written based around this tape and the other original members of Monty Python were drafted in to play themselves. The whole film will be made in glorious stereoscopic 3d, this will be a steep learning curve for all involved but we are relishing the prospect of getting our heads around this new technology. You can follow the film blog here.Our section is being directed collaboratively by Jock, Alasdair, Rok and Layla. Jock has been hard at work on designing up the characters and we are working on our animatic. Here are some of Jock’s designs
