About the Movie
“Stripped” is a feature-length documentary on comic strips, how they’re created, and the people behind them - featuring the first-ever recorded interview with Bill Watterson of Calvin & Hobbes. The film sits down with over 60 of the world’s best cartoonists to talk about comic strips, where the art form’s going, and what happens to it as newspapers die and digital takes off. Featured interviews include: Cathy Guisewite (Cathy), Lynn Johnston (For Better or For Worse), Mort Walker (Beetle Bailey), Mike & Jerry (Penny Arcade), Matt Inman (The Oatmeal), Kate Beaton (Hark! A Vagrant) and Patrick McDonnell (Mutts). Set to original music by Stefan Lessard of Dave Matthews Band, the film is a must-see for comics fans.
A fantastic love letter to the comic strip
Kellet & Schroeder have compiled a fantastic array of interviews and footage of comic strip creators from the early days to now, covering this medium with a thoughtfulness and passion that is only tempered by their terrific film making skills. It's a reminder to anyone who has read the funnies what a shared cultural medium comics strips are and how subtly they have shaped modern storytelling. For artists, this is a must watch. For everyone else, allow yourselves to remember how much you love reading comics by watching this doc and then go find some new comics to read. :)
