Whitewater Cinemas to Premiere Animated Film Directed by WHS Alumnus

Michael Hilliger, WHS ’17, invites readers to the premiere of his independently made animated short, “Marcus The Teenager’s Never-Ending Quest for Popularity.” Michael says it’s, “The goofy film I’ve been crafting for 2 years! 10 Minutes of Funny Animation! Stellar Voice Acting! An original score! A jazz piece with real players! Test audiences seem to love it!”

The event:

On Monday, March 27, doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 and are available at the door. Michael will be there to answer questions after the film and talk about how he created the short, so be sure to bring your questions. Merchandise and concessions will be available for purchase.

The plot:

A neurotic teen named Marcus desperately tries to improve his social standing through short-term “quests for popularity,” which often succeed (and backfire) in delightfully unexpected ways.

The creator:

Michael Hilliger is a lifelong creator of entertainment media specializing in animation. He was an animator on Amazon Prime’s “The Boys” and other animated shows since his graduation from Whitewater High School in 2017.

We are so excited to be hosting this premiere right here in Whitewater! MARCUS your calendars, we’ll see you on March 27th!
