Colin Hearts Kay
Brooklyn based cartoonist Colin Jenson has just broken up with his longtime girlfriend, Kay Ho. Colin takes US on a hilarious journey through his memories to uncover what went wrong over their three-year relationship and who was to blame. The non-linear adventure is illustrated through a comic and innovative style combining direct address, fantastical special effects, and animation as we step into the world of Colin's cartoon drawings. Colin's pursuit of love suffers a severe setback when Kay is introduced to the handsome hedge fund manager, Salvatore. Colin and Salvatore ultimately engage in a combination live-action and animated gladiator fight set in a hand-drawn Roman coliseum. Meanwhile, Kay struggles with the restrictive customs and cultural mores passed on to her by her traditional, Chinese parents. Is love duty and sacrifice, as they say? Or is it cartoony fireworks, as Colin would have it? Ultimately it's up to Colin to erase the mistakes of his past and draw upon lessons learned to win back the heart of his true love.
