Animated SF rom-com movie Mars to premiere at SXSW Film Festival

Texas filmmaker Geoff Marlett’s animated science fiction romantic-comedy movie Mars will premiere at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin in mid-March. A Swerve Pictures production told in the style of a graphic novel, the film stars Mark Duplass, Zoe Simpson and Cynthia Watros as three astronauts on the first manned mission to Mars, during which they experience “life threatening accidents, self doubts, obnoxious reporters, and the boredom of extended space travel.” Here’s the trailer:

That looks like an amazing film. I've seen the Rotoscoping effect used for various films and have never been impressed. But, this film, set in a fictional sci-fi world really heightens the sense of humor and pathos.
