Broken Saints: Alterati Exclusive Interview

With Broken Saints, Brooke and his small team of self-taught mavericks almost single-handedly transformed their creative vision into a strange and beautiful narrative reality… a Flash-animated graphic novel epic that transcends its roots on the Web to become one of the most celebrated cult masterpieces of the digital era. Told in byte-size installments over the course of three years, the entire 24-episode Broken Saints saga is now assembled in a comprehensive four-disc collector’s set DVD, released this Fall for the first time internationally thanks to a grant from Telefilm Canada and the distribution muscle of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.

Resembling a “graphic novel brought to life,” Broken Saints is a hypnotic visual feast that fuses art with comic-style text, deeply compelling story, haunting music and cinematic effects into a revolution in modern storytelling that is “eye-popping…innovative…mesmerizing” (Entertainment Weekly), “impressionistic, moody, lyrical” (National Public Radio) and a “brooding piece of web noir” (Wired). A testament to the incredible narrative freedoms of Flash animation as well as the influence of the Internet as a creative force, the original web premiere of Broken Saints has received over five million visitors, universal critical acclaim and numerous awards, including the Audience Award For Online Animation at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival and Producer Of the Year at the 2005 Canadian New Media Awards.
