MAD GOD is an experimental animated film set in a Miltonesque world of monsters, mad scientists, and war pigs.
Directed by legendary visual effects and stop-motion craftsman Phil Tippett, the sets, creatures, effects, and spirit of MAD GOD are, in every way, independent and created from the heart. Sometimes that heart is bursting with love for the craft - other times it's macabre, punctured, and bleeding. MAD GOD is a mature film crafted from techniques & technologies that span the history of cinema.

It is with great pleasure that we present the legendary animator and special effects creator Phil Tippett for this very special edition of the Montreal Stop Motion Festival! During this unique experience, attendees will have the chance to see the first three episodes of the MAD GOD series on the big screen in our 30 minute program. From there, Tippett will explore the creative process of this project with the audience.
A unique occasion that should not be missed if you wish to meet a master in the stop motion world and understand the makings of a true legend.
