After a tough week at the office, Richard and George like to play war games over the weekend to relax. The dispassionate atmosphere and minimalistic style with which the growing brutality is handled slowly wipes the smile from your face, before making sure that it doesn’t return.
Phil Mulloy is an award-winning British animator born in Wallasey (Merseyside). He studied painting and film and worked as a live-action film writer and director all until the late 1980s, when he began pursuing animation. His animations are mostly described as “satirical grotesque.” In addition to portrayals of contemporary social, political and religious values in a humorous and often shocking way, depictions of the dark sides of human nature have been his favourite pastime. He made over 30 animated films and is best known from his trilogy Intolerance 1, 2, 3 (2000-2004), series Cowboys (1991) and The Ten Commandments (1994-1996). He has won many international awards and is an active mentor in workshops for upcoming animators.
