Bill Plympton signing for Independently Animated
Academy Award-nominee Bill Plympton eschewed a career in the high-paying but soul-crushing Hollywood animation industry to explore his own creativity as an independent filmmaker. Called "mischievous, mordant, analytical, and ceaselessly imaginative" by the New York Times and hailed simply as "God" by Simpsons creator Matt Groening, Plympton is widely regarded as the hardest-working, most prolific animator in the business. Independently Animated (Universe) juxtaposes Plympton's story against the backdrop of the overall animation industry, presenting the life and art of "the King of Indie Animation."
