In November 2012 I created the animated piece, Mr Hodge, in collaboration with graphic novelist Alan Moore (Watchmen, V For Vendetta) and photographer Mitch Jenkins. This was featured as a segment in their first film project Jimmys End, available to view at jimmysend.com.
Several of Moore's graphic novels have been made into films, yet he has declined to attach his name to a single one. He has what can generously be described as a complicated relationship with the adaptations and has very publicly distanced his self from them. Jimmy’s End is the first work created specifically for the screen with Moore’s complete involvement.
The soundtrack is by Andrew Broder (Fog, Hymies Basement) and Adam Drucker (Subtle, cLOUDDEAD, Anticon).
