Alex Cox, who raised over $100,00 through Kickstarter to make Bill The Galactic Hero, has posted his movie online.
Cox, the creator of Repo Man and Sid & Nancy, directed the feature comedy. It is based on Harry Harrison’s classic anti-war science fiction novel which satirizes the work of Heinlein, Asimov and Gordon R. Dickson.
The movie had its first public showings last December in Boulder, Colorado with Moira and Todd Harrison, children of Harry, plus four other members of the Harrison clan in attendance.
The movie begins with full-color animation then proceeds with live action in black-and-white. Cox made it with the participation of students of the Film Studies and Theatre & Dance Departments of the University of Colorado at Boulder.
