    What happens when you transform a theatrical play into an animation? “Bingo,” an animation based on the short play “Disregard This Play” by Chicago’s Neo-Futurist Theatre Company, explores one answer. The story deals with the age-old question: “What if a lie is told long enough and loud enough?” “Bingo” is the first animation to be fully produced with Alias | Wavefront’s Maya animation software.
