Reel FX Animation Studios, an award-winning animation studio in Dallas, TX and Santa Monica, is releasing its first feature length animated film, Free Birds (in theaters November 1). Free Birds is a buddy comedy about two turkeys from opposite sides of the tracks who must put aside their differences and travel back in time to take Turkey off the Thanksgiving day menu! Directed by veteran Pixar animator and director, Jimmy Hayward (Horton Hears a Who!), and starring Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson, Amy Poehler as well as George Takei, Free Birds should be a among one of the best family animated films of this holiday season! The film’s screenplay was also written by Hayward and producer Scott Mosier (Good Will Hunting, Chasing Amy). Aron Warner (Shrek), Reel FX’s President of Animation is an Executive Producer along with John J. Strauss and David I. Stern. Free Birds is distributed by Relativity Media.
ODD CITY is proud to announce we will be releasing a FREE BIRDS limited edition print by one of our favorite artists, GRAHAM ERWIN!
“As soon as I was contacted about creating a poster for Free Birds, I knew the project was a perfect fit for me. Projects for animated movies are always a joy to illustrate in my style, and this was no exception. I found the sci-fi and time traveling elements of the film extremely exciting, and decided that juxtaposing those themes against the warm autumn scenery would make for a unique poster that celebrated the imaginative world the film creates. In addition to the usual amount of detail I like to put into my work, I also tried out some new halftone patterns for the gradients and textures which I hope will make the final product that much more enjoyable to see in person opposed to just viewing a jpeg on screen.” – Graham Erwin
The Graham Erwin FREE BIRDS print will be a limited release of 190, printed with 7 inks on French Lemon- Drop 100cc paper.
