Strange Frame

This looks trippy.

But read on and take a look at the trailer and tell me what you make of this work of adult animation (courtesy of our friends at Twitch) titled Strange Frame: Love And Sax.

The story goes...

In the distant future, humanity have abandoned the polluted Earth and colonized the moons of Jupiter. This has created an underclass of indentured slaves, as well as genetic mutations both for business and pleasure. In a street riot, middle-class-girl and sax-player Parker meets Naia, escaped slave and musician. The two quickly fall in love and form a band. Naia is spotted by a typically yet deliciously evil music producer, who spirits her away from Parker. Parker, in desperation of love, hooks up with space pirates Philo and Reesa to win back her lady.

Directed by GB Hajim, the film is billed as "the first Lesbian science fiction rock 'n roll animated film." Sure enough, I googled "first Lesbian science fiction rock 'n roll animated film," and guess what I found? :)

According to the project's Facebook page, it made its World Premiere on May 3, 2012, at the London SciFi & Fantastical Film Festival, with upcoming screenings planned for venues in Atlanta on August 31st and in LA on September 15th

Providing voices for the characters are Claudia Black, Tara Strong, Ron Glass, Cree Summer, Tim Curry, Alan Tudyk, Michael Dorn, Claudia Christian and George Takei.

Twitch saw it at the festival in London, and reviewed it, calling it "a gorgeous and engrossing tale of the power of love and music," as well as "dense in form and content," and finally, "an embarrassment of riches."

The film's Facebook page has tons of images to look at, so you're encouraged to go THERE and check them out. You'll also find more info on its official website HERE.

But first, here's the new dreamscape trailer which was just released yesterday:
