Two Headed Cop Begins Production

In a recent press release, CA-based animation studio Animation Rigs has announced that they have begun production on a new animated film noire entitled Two-Headed Cop, which came from the fertile minds of animation industry veterans Derek Friesenborg and Brian Ormiston.

“He’s the toughest cop in Fat City”, says Friesenborg. “He’s also got two heads. One head’s Asian, one’s Caucasian, both answer to Ray. They share a talent for hard-boiled justice and a middle leg. Other than that, they’ve got zip in common!”

Two-Headed Cop tells the story of Ray and Ray as they battle crime and occasionally each other, in order to upend Fat City’s Criminal Element. Framed for an assault on the town’s most beloved entertainer, Two-Headed Cop becomes a fugitive from the law. To clear their name, they must descend into the seedy underbelly of Fat City on a journey into the dark, tilted world of carnies, goons, grifters, pet markets, fine haberdashery… and a mysterious figure from out of their past.

“Our film is inspired by the styles and palettes of ‘40s-era animation, as well as the dark tones of film noir”, says Friesenborg. “Thematically, it’s hard-boiled pulp fiction, taking its cues from classics like Touch of Evil, Raw Deal and Out of the Past, as well as the crime fiction of Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler and Mickey Spillane.

“But it’s not just an homage to old films,” continues Friesenborg. “It’s a surreal world where the chief of police walks on his knuckles like an ape. Where the biggest thug in town smashes through buildings like a wrecking-ball on legs. Where a dancing naked fat guy is the hottest show in town. It’s a world where there is no “normal”, but the closest you can get to it is Two-Headed Cop.”
