Director's Comments

2nd place in the BIM STAR competition.

I wrote the script for this back in June and filmed for almost 3 months straight.

There were a lot of different influences for this; I think some of the strongest were Warner Bro's Cartoons, Robot Chicken, Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Ren & Stimpy.

Staff Review

Jay Harris:
Wild and crazy, inventive and hilarious, clever and entertaining, Bodville's STAR entry has a lot to like. Time-traveling can get a little nutty, but this film doesn't dodge that fact - it barrels right into it at full speed, laughing all the way. With great animation, colorful visuals, and an out-of-this-world concept, there is no way Cyclic will leave you feeling bored.
