The holidays are fast approaching which means tons of family time. Now depending on your family this can be a good or a bad thing BUT one thing that can help is the slew of movies that come out this time of year. Such is the case from Award-winning Reel FX Animation Studios as they release their first feature length animated film, Free Birds.
Free Birds stars the voice talents of Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson, Amy Phoehler, Dan Fogler, Lesley Nicol, George Takei, Colm Meaney, Keith David, Eddie Sotelo, Josh Lawson, and Danny Carey. In this hilarious, adventurous buddy comedy for audiences of all ages, directed by veteran Pixar animator and director Jimmy Hayward (Horton Hears a Who!), two turkeys from opposite sides of the tracks must put aside their differences and team up to travel back in time to change the course of history – and get turkey off the Thanksgiving menu for good.
Odd City Entertainment wants to get in on the festivities so they reached out to artist Graham Erwin to do a licensed print for the film and he jumped at the chance. Here is what he had to say about this opportunity. “As soon as I was contacted about creating a poster for Free Birds, I knew the project was a perfect fit for me. Projects for animated movies are always a joy to illustrate in my style, and this was no exception. I found the sci-fi and time traveling elements of the film extremely exciting, and decided that juxtaposing those themes against the warm autumn scenery would make for a unique poster that celebrated the imaginative world the film creates. In addition to the usual amount of detail I like to put into my work, I also tried out some new halftone patterns for the gradients and textures which I hope will make the final product that much more enjoyable to see in person opposed to just viewing a jpeg on screen.”
The print goes onsale tomorrow, Friday October 25, 2013 and can be purchased through Odd City Entertainment’s WEBSITE. Follow ODD CITY ENTERTAINMENT on TWITTER for the exact time. Free Birds is distributed by Relativity Media and hits theaters on November 1st.
