The Stolen Lyric – An Animated Retelling of Robin Hood Set in the Rock Music World
THE STOLEN LYRIC, a cleverly offbeat edgy experimental animated retelling of Robin Hood is set in the rock music world (Robin Hood and his band “ The Merry”).
An animated anti-corporate rock movie musical like no other, THE STOLEN LYRIC updates the medieval ballads of Robin Hood mashup-style, by transforming an epic 555 song fragments from 129 iconic artists into movie dialogue. Forget stealing from the rich to feed the poor: charismatic front man Rob and his rock band “The Merry” take from the corporate fat cats holding culture hostage and give the power back to the people in a rotten tale of brotherhood, betrayal, greed, lust, and general mayhem. Want a fight? You’ve got one.
A fearless tale that draws from the past to pave the way for a musical revolution, THE STOLEN LYRIC shows that when it comes to the greed and corruption of the rich and powerful, the song remains the same.
This truly one-of-a-kind hybrid of an arty avant-garde protest film and pop culture fun combines the counterculture attitude of a 70’s rock opera with the sensibility of an Internet mashup videoto address issues that are close to the hearts of young people today such as the social impacts of mega-corporate consolidation as well as income inequality.
THE STOLEN LYRIC is currently available on YouTube and Amazon.
