This Week Blaise and James discuss “5 to 7″. We also chat about Twin Peaks without David Lynch, Full House at Netflix and Dave Chappelle. James gets a chance to talk to Bill Plympton about his film Cheatin’.
We were lucky to catch a screener of the animated film, Cheatin’ and also talk to the film’s director, Bill Plympton. Be sure to catch the film in select theaters and on Vimeo!
Usvsfilm: Your hard work really shows in Cheatin’. It’s very unique and it’s like a one of a kind story. I’m sure the script is structured differently from other films, so what was your process of getting it ready like and set for production?
Vimeo has teamed up with the “King of Indie Animation,” Bill Plympton, for the global release of his animated feature, CHEATIN’. On the heels of a multi-city US theatrical release beginning in April, Vimeo will be releasing the film exclusively on Vimeo On Demand on April 21, 2015.
Available today for pre-order, CHEATIN’ is an award-winning, surreal animated adult tale of love, jealousy, revenge, and murder. Inspired by the work of James M. Cain (“Double Indemnity”, “The Postman Always Rings Twice”), CHEATIN’ marks Academy Award®-nominated Bill Plympton’s seventh animated feature film.
CHEATIN’ synopsis: In a fateful bumper car collision, Jake and Ella meet and become the most loving couple in the long history of Romance. But when a scheming “other” woman drives a wedge of jealousy into their perfect courtship, insecurity spells out an untimely fate. With only the help of a disgraced magician and his forbidden “soul machine,” Ella takes the form of Jake’s numerous lovers, desperately fighting through malfunction and deceit as they try to reclaim their destiny.
CHEATIN’ will retail on Vimeo On Demand for $4.99 for a 72-hour streaming rental or $9.99 for download to own.
