Hope you’re saddled up for this ride, cowpoke!

This prompts Andrew to make a pact: don’t upgrade phones, don’t upgrade life, don’t become douchebags.

Corky

Written by Ty Primosch & Karen Mathieson; Directed by Ty Primosch; Produced by Karen Mathieson

A corkscrew with a screw loose battles a giant glass bottle to uncork seven magical lightning bugs trapped inside.

Currently an artist at Blue Sky Studios, Ty Primosch is credited on Ice Age, EPIC, RIO2, Peanuts & upcoming movies. Corky is Ty’s debut independent short animation. It was animated out of his apartment, over a 6 year period.

While the short was generated with a computer, every object, sound, and surface was carefully created with imperfections to achieve a handcrafted style for a magical storybook feel. This handcrafted style was also woven into the original score where composer Tyler Durham incorporated kitchen items as instruments.
