Dailymotion and Screenworks Ireland are backing Irish animator Enda O’Connor in her creation of Bewildering Life which looks to be a fun, wild, and absurd romp based on the trailer above. The raunchy web series is being described as an animated comedy about a group of oddballs in a world where “an outwardly saintly, inwardly evil rock star with a head bigger than Jupiter can start a war Hitler would have been proud of–over a hat. Or where a hunter killer robot soldier can be gay.”
The seven-episode series will debut on June 15th with episodes released every two weeks. It will be allotted front page real estate on Dailymotion in the USA, the UK and Ireland, In addition to animating the series O’Connor voices almost all the characters himself. Irish rock band Therapy? provides the entire soundtrack.
Screenworks producer Paul Duane, (Secret Diary of a Call Girl) put it this way, “Enda’s mad, hyped-up comic vision is the real voice of 21st century Ireland, where influences from South Park, comics and science fiction are mashed up with everyday events in small towns.”
Based on the trailer, this looks like one really messed up sci-fi spectacular with a dark sense of humor peppered throughout, constructed by the careful hand of a unique animator with a whole lot to say.
