Monty Python fans will rejoice in the upcoming release A Liar's Autobiography (EPIX) an animated 3D stereoscopic film based on the memoir by Monty Python member Graham Chapman. Superfad is one of the key creative teams involved in the project and is currently in production on a seven-minute sequence for the highly anticipated film. The EPIX stereoscopic animated feature, made in association with Bill and Ben Productions Ltd., Trinity (UK) and Brainstorm Media, tells the story of Chapman's life in the famously atypical Python style.

Superfad designed extensive character studies for the young Graham, mother and father, before going into production on the animated sequence. It is the first 3D production by Superfad and the official foray of the company into feature film animation production. For Superfad’s creatives, many rabid Python enthusiasts, the opportunity to contribute to the film is an honor and the opportunity break new ground for the company in terms of its creative and technical reach. "This project is exciting for so many reasons, from the irreverent and compelling narrative to the structure involving many different animation companies, to the stereoscopic production," comments Superfad Partner/EP Geraint Owen. "It is a first of its kind and totally original. We can't wait to see it all come together on the big screen.” The film's world television premiere will be in both 2D and 3D on EPIX and EpixHD.com in the Spring of 2012 and released theatrically in the UK by London-based Trinity.
