About a year ago I was suffering from insomnia and found this video on YouTube called Kounterclockwise in Forever-Land. It’s an hour long animated movie by Jim Lujan. It stars Deacon Burns and Kaya Rogue, the hip hop duo known as Kounterclockwise. The movie tripped me out! So, I left a comment and Deacon commented back. We started an exchange and he found out I was interested in art. He suggested I contact Jim. The next thing you know, I’ve completed a couple of short films (The Kid and The Train Job) and Jim is my indie animation hero. He tells me stuff like this!
Kaya Rogue, half of the hip-hop band Kounterclockwise, stars as the voice of Tina. Tina is the sultry red headed leading lady of this film. She is no “damsel in distress” either. She’s a swashbuckling adventurer who takes control of a chaotic situation. This 20 minute short opens March 13th at 8 PM on YouTube.
