Missoula artist and longtime Indy contributor Andy Smetanka is on a mission to make one of his signature silhouette films—this one called And We Were Young, about World War I.
On the website it says:
"Always something of a Great War buff, animator Andy Smetanka got his first taste of animating it while working on Guy Maddin's 2007 hometown "docufantasia," My Winnipeg. Further moved by a new history of the Meuse-Argonne campaign—still the bloodiest battle in American history—Smetanka set about to create an original vision of America in the fight with an animated documentary combining silhouettes and cut paper with the words of soldiers who were there."
You can check out the teaser trailer here, but there are some other entertaining videos to view on the film's kickstarter page.
