"POPEYE THE SAILOR" is a short fan film, Directed and Starring Michael Valentine as "Popeye" and Orlando Candelario as "Bar Brawlin' Boyd". This short was shot in 4 hours in New York City and is designed to show the tone and visual style of a planned Bigger film in the works by VALENTINEproductions to debut in 2012.
What if Popeye really existed? What would he have been like as a young man? This is where i wanted/want to go with Popeye. His adventures before becoming the old craggy face sailor we know and love.
"I am a huge fan of Popeye and am very disappointed with how the character has de-evolved and is barely recognized by many these days. I am trying to take this character, that i am so passionate about, and with the hopes of trying to bring him back into the public view and trying to re-instill the dignity, wit, fun and especially that Urban feel that the original Fleischer cartoons had, only based in a more realistic setting". -Michael Valentine
