Canadian animation house Cuppa Coffee Studios is giving its own comedic touch to the U.S. presidential race by offering a bizarre animated foray into the mind of Donald Trump in ‘Trump Unhinged’. Presented in the form of a deranged advent calendar, every day in June, Cuppa Coffee will unleash a new Trumped-up animation.
“What do a sun-burnt troll, an anvil flattened monkey, and a golden turd all have in common? They are part of our surreal take on what is going on inside The Donald’s head in this unusual political season," says Adam Shaheen, Cuppa Coffee’s Executive Producer, concluding, "It’s an important part of the US election conversation”.
The Toronto studio is launching www.trumpunhinged.com on June 1, and will be offering new doses of political obsurdity daily via the website, Twitter, and Facebook feeds. Each animation begins with a caricatured, stop-motion puppet of Donald literally flipping his lid before diving beneath Trump’s famous golden mop and in to the inner machination of The Donald’s mind.
“We cover all the favorite and newsworthy Trump moments, adding our own amusing, animated take on the issues from this rather offbeat political season,” says Shaheen.
“It took a team of 9 artists over a month to dream up and create everything in this big collection of little films. Our dedicated team shot over 4,000 frames, went through three pounds of blue jelly beans, endless cans of gold spray paint, and a small fortune in chocolate gold coins to create this original peek into Trump’s mind.” Chris Morris, Cuppa’s Creative Director, added “You could say, we’re mimicking the insanity with our own brand of the ridiculous!”
