At last year’s New York Comic Con, some artwork was unveiled from the upcoming animated documentary A Liar’s Autobiography. Directed by Bill Jones, the son of Monty Python Terry Jones, the film employed 14 animation studios to bring to life different portions of the life of deceased Python member Graham Chapman. The few pieces that were shown were fairly intriguing and left me wondering how they would look in motion.
The first trailer for the film, which is based on some audio recordings made by Chapman for a never released reading of his autobiography and augmented by the voice talents of most of the remaining Pythons, has been released and does suggest that Chapman’s life was at least as entertaining as his comedy. A pity though, that while Python’s resident animator Terry Gilliam is providing voices for the project he wasn’t able to animate a section himself.)
Take a look.
