Hooray For Italy

What is it about Boxhead and Roundhead that the Italians love so much.
So far they've played in three Italian festivals and this will be followed by a fourth - Malescorto, in August.
BnR also have their first public screening in North America, at Pictoplasm, here in New York City.



yeah there mouths look like angel hair pasta...limbs look like noodles too. Italy loves noodle cartoons..

Seriously though....great work...and much continued success.

Elliot Cowan said...

Paul, you demon.
How the hell are you?

I do have something vaguely like that planned...

Forbes Browne said...

Congratulations! Boxhead and Roundhead deserve all this attention. These short films you are making are fantastic. Dark, witty and sensitive, I really enjoy watching them. Thanks!

Elliot Cowan said...

Cheers Forbes!
That's the kind of feeback I like to hear.

I dunno. Only just caught the act today at the Fred shop.
I gotta tell ya, only rarely do I laugh at times like that.
Quigley down under when two bad guys suddenly fell down dead and then we hear a distant (boom)
Burt Reynolds fighting back to shore, at first promising everything to church if he lives only finally demanding that God owes him as he reaches shore....but then Dom Delouise steps out from behind a rock (I can't even remember the name of that one....)
and today, after all came back to the hapless heroes, and just when we all thought everything would be OK....and the boat springs a leak!
Elliot, today you are my hero!
A laughing hero, mind you, which won't actually carry over to tomorrow, but, none-the-less, a hero!

Elliot Cowan said...

A hero for a day.
Hardly, but I'm glad you enjoyed the cartoon.

Good luck with the Pictoplasma thing.
Can you win ?..... How can you lose?

Elliot Cowan said...

Cheers mate.
Pictoplasma is a weird festival, celebrating a particular type of character design.
I'm not entirely sure what the point it.
The reason, I think that Boxhead and Roundhead got into the festival is because it's actually organised out of Germany.
The Germans seem to like B&R almost as much as the Italians.
