An animated tribute to one of the world's all time great comedian philosophers, George Carlin, based on his relentlessly poignant and self reflective monologue "Modern Man". This film is approached as a cut-out style animation anijam created by students from my "Animation ll" & "Laughing Matters" classes at Philadelphia's University of the Arts 2009 - 2013. The inspiration for this project was partially based on George Carlin having just been awarded the Mark Twain Prize for excellence in comedy in 2009. He did not live to attend this event in his honor and was the first person to receive this award posthumously. We all miss you George.
