Hollywood animation house Titmouse (Disney’s Motorcity, Adult Swim’s Black Dynamite) is about to publicly release their first original animated theatrical short The Hidden Life of the Burrowing Owl on iTunes. It’s a hilarious little film, a parody of true-life nature films, exquisitely directed my staffer Mike Roush (Metalocalypse). Owl has screened at film festivals around the world and, according to Titmouse rep, Ben Kalina, “…the studio has gotten tons of requests for a public release, so we’re finally doing it.”
It’s available via iTunes starting Tuesday April 9th – it’s up for pre-order on iTunes here. Additional information on the short (and a trailer) is available here. Highly recommended.
