"Alternative Universe" is a quirky, edgy animated space tale with a focus on the global climate crisis... it's "Bo Jack Horseman" meets POTUS.
Logline: The newly elected U.S. President, Donald Trump, is seeing his psychiatrist and former Nazi adviser to his father, Dr. Hoopenschlocken. Fulfilling a promise to Donald's late father, the doctor has the arduous task of transforming his narcissistic, fascist son into a principled, benevolent world leader.
"Candice Delevante has a unique way of developing characters and describing their personalities and actions with great detail. It's easy to imagine 'Alternative Universe' while reading it and some of the tweets and dialogue that Candice weaved into the story is astounding." - Austin Comedy Short Film Festival
