This is the coolest thing I've ever seen. How did I not know about this before?!

As I understand it, part of Mad God has been released. Where you can get it, I know not.

Parts 1 and 2 are available for purchase at the movie's website. I'm going to hold out until Part 3 myself, so I can watch them in one go instead of waiting after the first two.

Thank you Stalvern!

Here's an interview with Tippet, from Cinefex: http://cinefex.com/blog/phil-tippett-talks-mad-god/

Gives a good history of the project. He started working on it (and other projects) in the early 90's, stopped because no one would fund it, and because CG took over.
One of the projects was Mad God. I’d shot about six minutes worth of film on 35mm, but the project had got too big, and around that time the digital revolution hit, so I had to completely re-gear how I thought about things. Then, about three or four years ago, some of the guys at my studio – including Chris Morley and Randy Link – saw me archiving all this ancient Mad God material. They were really excited and relaunched the project.

Fairly funny stop motion short from the 30's.
