Just in time for ComiCon, Javier Lopez Duprey gives Channel Frederator “Trigger Happy” - a short and sweet short about a good guy gone bad.

Channel Frederator: Where did you get the idea for “Trigger Happy”?

Javier Lopez Duprey: I got the idea while I was in the middle of the superhero craze. I was wondering when the next Spiderman or Batman would be coming out and I immediately thought that it would be great to do something related to superheroes. Then I thought about how I could tell a different story than that which I have already seen. So I came up with a world that required heroes to be licensed and a main character that wanted to be good, but could not help being bad.

CF: What was your favorite part of making the film?

JLD: My favorite part had to be animating the film. Coming up with how the gun would move and how the character would express himself.

CF: What has influenced your style the most?

JLD: Well definitely stuff like The Incredibles and the snappiness of Looney Tunes animation. Also, Willem Defoe. He’s a great actor and really good in evil roles. I would imagine my character as a sort of caricature of him.

CF: What are your superpowers?

JLD: I am more flexible than any guy my height and build should ever be. It freaks people out when they see a short stocky dude curl up into a pretzel.

CF: Who is your arch-nemesis?

JLD: The internet, the greatest distraction on earth. But I really do love it. All heroes secretly love their Arch Nemesis right?

Yep! Thanks for the interview, Javier!
