What is the film about?

Wackatdooo is an indie animated short film colored with crazy swing jazz and pure animation frenzy.

What influenced it?

I am a huge fan of old school American animation from the golden age like Ub Iwerks and cartoons from the Fleischer Studios and other things from the 30s for the craziness and pure fun animation; People in the 40s like Tex Avery, Bob Clampett & Chuck Jones for the gags and the quality of the animation; Also the 50s like UPA for the modern design. I cannot deny that I am also a huge fan of The Ren & Stimpy Show

A little background information...

I had been working in the animation industry for eleven years on projects that do not always fill my creative needs. I had always dreamed of directing an animated short film worthy of mention and I had been drawing that cat character for a long time, so I kind of created a story around him.

How was the film was made?
