Sergei Bondarchuk directed an 8-hour film adaptation of War and Peace (1966-67), which ended up winning an Oscar for Best Foreign Picture. When he was in Los Angeles as a guest of honor at a party, Hollywood royalty like John Wayne, John Ford, Billy Wilder lined up to meet the Russian filmmaker. But the only person that Bondarchuk was truly excited to meet was Ray Bradbury. Bondarchuk introduced the author to the crowd of bemused A-listers as “your greatest genius, your greatest writer!”
Ray Bradbury spent a lifetime crafting stories about robots, Martians, space travel and nuclear doom and, in the process, turned the formerly disreputable genre of Sci-Fi/Fantasy into something respectable. He influenced legions of writers and filmmakers on both sides of the Atlantic from Stephen King to Neil Gaiman to Francois Truffaut, who adapted his most famous novel, Fahrenheit 451, into a movie.

This project is rotoscoped animation in the style of Ralph Bakshi’s The Lord of the Rings and Fire & Ice (though certainly a bit of Heavy Metal and He-Man made its way in, too). The live action portion of the process began filming a year ago, to the day, of this submission. The film stars Jon Tomlinson, and was co-directed by Josh Jones. It was written, co-directed, drawn by hand in Photoshop, and animated in Premiere, by Morgan Galen King. The music featured is by the incredible bands Strand of Oaks and Ice Dragon, with additional music by Jonn Ollsin of The Family Band.
