After thirty years in the making, the personal masterpiece of the Oscar-winning effects and stop-motion genius who put his stamp on such classics as »Star Wars« and »Jurassic Park« finally comes to the screen. From the visionary who received the 2021 »Ticinomodo Vision Award« in Locarno, »Mad God« is already being hailed by critics and fans as an instant cult classic. A descent into ontological madness and hell, like a canvas in the spirit of Hieronymus Bosch. Follow »The Assassin« through a forbidding world of tortured souls, decrepit bunkers, and wretched monstrosities forged from the most primordial horrors of the subconscious mind. Every set, creature, and effigy in this macabre masterpiece is hand-crafted and painstakingly animated using traditional stop-motion techniques. »Mad God« is a labor of love, a testament to the power of creative grit, and an homage to the timeless art of stop-motion animation. Ready your eyes. Ready your spirit. Prepare to meet your maker. Tippett offers a journey into a universe of horrors – a decades long passion project that pushed the boundaries of the creator himself.
