About the Project:
The Woman Who Loved Weirdo Goon is an indie short film being shot in late summer/early fall in Chicagoland area. The film is a 20 min dark comedy in black/white live-action and also with traditional-style color animation. The story is about a legendary graphic novelist named ‘Weirdo Goon’ who published only one graphic novel in 1968 but then vanished and became a recluse. The story picks up current time where we get into the character’s insanity and delusional mind. Aspects from his graphic novel start coming to life and he becomes incapable of separating art from reality. It has dark themes about loneliness, mental illness and hallucinogenics; however, it is also about romance and love.

The film already has lots of talent on board and will have a premiere showing at the Gene Siskel Film Center upon completion.
