Badly Drawn Roy

Teen/Adult, 1×30′


Badly Drawn Roy is set in the present day in a working class suburb of Dublin. We meet Roy, Ireland’s only living animated character. He was born in 1972 into an ordinary ‘live action’ family. This fly on the wall documentary film allows us exclusive access into Roy’s life where we learn of the prejudices he must overcome on a daily basis.

Roy is intelligent but unfortunately for him he is badly drawn. The film charts his increasing desperation at failing to gain steady employment. His animated body prevents him from securing regular manual jobs and his poor rendering has seen him rejected from countless animation auditions.

This desperation is finally too much for Roy and with the support of his family and friends he emigrates to Hollywood in search of fame, fortune and corrective surgery.
