MAD GOD: Parts 1, 2, 3 - Mad God is an experimental, hand-made, animated film, set in a Miltonesque world of monsters, mutants and mad scientists. The sets, creatures, effects and spirit are, in every way, independent and created from the heart. Sometimes that heart is bursting with love for the craft, while other times it's punctured and bleeding all over the place... 24 frames per second. MAD GOD is a mature film made with technology that spans the history of cinema. The inspirations for the film span from Bertold Brecht & Hieronymous Bosch to Buster Keaton.
"The final form of Mad God isnt the film itself, but the memory after you watch it. Its bringing you to that moment just after waking up from a dream, frozen, exploring fragments of your feral mind before they fade back into the shadows. Thats the moment. Mad God is just a way to get you there. " - Phil Tippett
