Interview Animator/Filmmaker Bill Plympton:
We started our chat by discussing why he chose to make Hitler's Folly free to his fans.
The animated film is a mockumentary on what if Hitler's artistic endeavors had held strong throughout his life. Or as Bill asks…
"In an alternate world, what if Hitler were a cartoonist?". Such an intriguing question, where did this idea come from?
In the film there are some really clever photoshopped moments and cue cards with funny quotes from other infamous Nazis. Bill expanded on the usage of real photos mixed with his sense of humor. And who knew that the Nazis created the t-shirt cannon gun seen at most sporting events?
I asked Bill about making a WW II film and how much of a history nut he really is.
Bill gave a shout out to his independent nature and how it's lead to his outrageous sense of humor being seen by so many folks. As you'll hear, no studio would have the guts to make Bill's movies or art.
Lastly, I asked Bill about what's happening later this year for him.
