A twisty, futuristic adventure, Power Hungry is a Benjy Brooke film about a road-tripper whose self-driving car runs out of batteries. The characters we encounter in this world are strange, self-sufficient mavericks who battle it out for energy sources in a post-apocalyptic world. Benjy was approached by Super Deluxe to expand upon the sci-fi web comics he'd already been posting to his Tumblr. Originally, the web comics were stream of conscious stuff with no real plot, but with this film, Benjy narrowed in on a narrative that thrived because of its linear quality. It utilizes a somewhat literal interpretation of the typical story arc—that of a long road filled with obstacles until final resolution—yet puts a unique and unexpected spin on it. And the character design and immensely impressive animation along the way are both extraordinary and classic Benjy.
