Watch The Hilariously Grotesque Teaser For THE ABSENCE OF EDDY TABLE!
How long does animation take? Well, it was all the way back in January of 2013 - i.e. a very, very long time ago - that we first brought word of The Absence Of Eddy Table, the Rune Spaans directed animated short based on teh writing and design work of cult comic artist Dave Cooper. And, yes, Spaans has gone and made a feature since then as well, which is a big part of why the short took so long but, hey, still if you're good at making pretty pictures and you want your pretty pictures to be both pretty AND gross at the same time, then that takes a bit of time to do right. The Absence Of Eddy Table has done it right.
The Absence of Eddy Table tells the story of how the titular character Eddy Table gets lost in a mysterious forest, where he encounters both true love and and true horror!
I mean, seriously, look at that still image up above! It's amazing! And it all looks even better in motion! Yep, with the short about to premiere at Fantastic Fest before moving on to the Ottawa International Animation Festival and Nordisk Panorama in Malmö, Sweden the first teaser has arrived online! Mike Patton (yes, the Faith No More Mike Patton) and Ingrid Bolso Berdal provide the voices. Check it out below!
