I personally don’t think about movies (and I mean CG movies) as “animal movies” or such categories. For instance I don’t see “Finding Nemo” or “Madagascar” as “animal movies” at all, I just see the animation and storyline, which is usually veeeery human, and I buy it. Otherwise you could also say there are lots of “human movies” like ED, or Final Fantasy, or The Incredibles… you can’t really compare those stories among each other can you ? It doesn’t matter what the characters are, the story is only thing that matters.
In “Plumiferos”, the script was being worked on for at least 3 years. It has had many modifications and versions, and during the last year 3 people (including me) besides the original author (director Daniel DeFelippo) were also working on it. Of course this doesn’t mean that you are going to like it anyway, but it should somehow make you realize this is not an improvised story written by school kids in between classes.
Storyline is about a little female canary which was bought by super-hi-tech-software-corporation-owner called Mr Puertas, and who suddenly escaped from her cage. She met an ordinary street sparrow and friends, and live different adventures having Mr Puertas trying to catch her back all the time. This is in simple words the main storyline (there are several storylines which are connected along the movie), it is a comedy with action and love scenes.
I bet a lot of people will like it, and a lot of people will only complain about being another stupid animal movie (absolutely true) or find it really dumb compared to ED … that’s OK for me, I just want people has the chance to watch it and post here about it :).
About heart… well, our heart, brain, blood and civil rights are pretty commited with the project, so I hope at least all this effort will show up when you guys watch it !
