If you are in the New York City area, Plympton, , has an exclusive engagement opening on Wednesday, October 6th, of his Terry Gilliam-sponsored Animated Feature Film:”Idiots and Angels” (run time 78 mins.) a black comedy about a man’s battle with his wings and his soul, at the IFC Center323 Sixth Avenue at West 3rd Street, NYC preceded by Plympton’s new, multi-award winning animated short film: “The Cow Who Wanted to Be a Hamburger”, which won the Grand Prize for animation at the Florida Film Festival. I got to see this bovine comic opera and it is a scream. You can come and meet Bill Plympton, who is very approachable, when he makes personal appearances at the last screening of the day on Wednesday, October 6th and Thursday, October 7th, followed by a Q & A. Bill will be signing postcards at this event and there will be a quiz and signed poster and DVD prizes.

For a good laugh when you need it, may I also recommend his series of dog films (perfect if you are a dog owner like me) or “Santa: The Facist Years.” Bill was one of the professionals I have interviewed on how to obtain clients and he really stressed having multiple streams of income as a strategy. If you get a chance to meet him you will find him very approachable.
