ANIMATION GEEK: Marcel, King of Tervuren by Tom Schroeder

In this Greek tragedy as acted out by Belgian roosters (which is how director and animator Tom Schroeder describes this tale) a very resourceful Cock manages to outwit the Bird Flu, alcohol and sleeping pill abuse, repeated attempts at capture and an overthrow by a vengeful son.

While the above paragraph might sound like something Hollywood green-lit after a few potent drinks in it, the story is completely true and beautifully told by Ann Berckmoes, Marcel’s kinda-sorta owner who witnessed this epic poem come to life (even Homer would be jealous) and who, judging by her tone of voice as she recounts the adventures of Marcel, is as completely in love with him as you will be once you hear his tale.

As the old adage goes, “Life is stranger than fiction” and, after watching this animated short, you will thank the Muses for this one.

Video after the break.
