SAN JOSE, CALIF. (January 14, 2013) — Director G.B. Hajim’s critically-acclaimed animated lesbian science fiction rock musical STRANGE FRAME debuts on DVD March 19th from Wolfe Video and will be available early across all digital platforms on February 5th. The gorgeous animated sci-fi story explores the theme of the transformative power of love between two women. Dramatically rendered in rich, colorful animation, the film brings viewers into a world of space pirates, indentured slaves and genetic mutations — infused with music throughout, to create a dreamlike tale unlike anything they’ve ever seen.

The all-star voice cast includes Tim Curry (The Rocky Horror Picture Show), Claudia Black (TV’s “Stargate SG-1,” “90210”), Ron Glass (TV’s “Firefly,” “Barney Miller”), Juliet Landau (TV’s “Green Lantern: The Animated Series”), Tara Strong (TV’s “Ultimate Spider-Man,” “My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic”), George Takei (Star Trek franchise), Cree Summer (TV’s “The Spectacular Spider-Man,” “A Different World”), Claudia Christian (TV’s “Babylon 5”) and Dawnn Lewis (TV’s “Futurama,” “A Different World”). The VD comes loaded with bonus features, including two behind-the-scenes featurettes: “Claudia Black: On Strange Frame, Sex Scenes and Sci-Fi” and “In the Studio with Claudia Black, Tara Strong, Ron Glass, Cree Summer, Juliet Landau, Michael Dorn and George Takei,” as well as a deleted scene. 

After its world premiere at Sci-Fi London: The International Festival of Science Fiction and Fantastic Film, it won the “Best Feature Film” award at the 2012 Dragon Con.

SYNOPSIS: Set at the end of the 28th century, the human race has long since abandoned a desolate earth. In order to survive, humanity has been using genetic engineering to adapt to otherworld environments, to the point where changing one's skin color or gender has become commonplace. On the moon Ganymede, saxophonist Parker (Claudia Black) and guitarist Naia (Tara Strong) develop a close relationship. The two embark on their new relationship and form a new band — but they also must fight for their freedom from the evil Mig (Tim Curry).
