About the Author
When M dot Strange touched down in Park City, Utah for the Sundance Film Festival in January 2007 for the world premiere of his first animated feature, We Are the Strange, thousands of Internet-obsessed teens and twentysomethings already knew more about the film than any buyer at the festival. For months M dot had been leaking footage and behind-the-scenes featurettes of the film to YouTube, and once he was accepted to Sundance he put up the trailer. It got 500,000 views in four days. Not bad for a guy who made a movie in his bedroom. With a love for 8-bit video games and stop-motion animation, the San Jose-based M dot has been honing his bizarre brand of stories since the late '90s. "I've never taken a film class or an art class ever," he says. "I learned everything through the Internet and reading books - the Internet was my film school." M dot's newest animated feature film is called HEART STRING MARIONETTE due for release in 2011. M dot Strange in a UBERECTOR. M dot Strange is also an electronic musician and rapper who has produced 19 albums in the past ten years... he also has a bike.

I actually wrote to M Dot Strange after reading the book and he responded really quick, nice guy. This is the complete opposite of other directors (eg from Hollywood), who want nothing from you but to watch their movie and that's it. By doing that, they're really not hearing what you have to say - good or bad. In fact, George Lucas got so sick of hearing from people that he stopped making movies.
I highly recommend this book.
