Hugo-winning science fiction artist Frank Wu sez,
We are continuing our efforts to make a full-length animated film with half a dozen people + many, many years. This is a sampler video of characters and spaceships from our "Guidolon the Giant Space Chicken," which is a film about a giant space chicken making a film about a giant space chicken.This thing is pure Wu: so weird, arch, and goofy that it would take a week to explain it to a civilian. Go Frank, go!
The animation is still "in-process," but it's a nice intro to Guidolon the Giant Space Chicken and film director, Trisuron the giant space Triceratops and movie actress/producer, Jerora the giant space jellyfish and production manager, and their enemy, Fribugus, the giant space pangolin and movie studio lackey.
The phrase "giant space chicken" underlies the existential angst of the piece, as "giant" is what we hope to become, "chicken" is what we fear we are, and "space" is the amorphous place where we float without a hand-hold, trying to define ourselves before others define us first.

I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
