From James Kochalka: "I've got a fairly large part in this new animated movie called MARS that is premiering at SXSW in March. It was created using a computerized rotoscoping technique. Here's the trailer.

"I'm in the very first scene in this trailer, and although I don't speak in this shot rest assured that I have plenty of lines in the actual movie. You also might notice that the font used in the trailer and throughout the movie is based on my own comics lettering style. It's the Kochalka Font."

Meanwhile, Troy Brownfield interviews James at Newsarama.
