Done for Titmouse inc. Animation Studio’s 5 Second Day 2014. By Mike Roush.

Parker Simmons and I directed this collaborative short with the talented Doug Vito as editor.

The idea came to us when we were pitching ideas around about what would make a popular “internet video”. We agreed, the success or failure has everything to do with the video’s thumbnail. If it is of a sexy lady, or better yet a close up of a bikini topped beach bunny it would get a million hits whether it was good or not. But how do we make sure that the thumbnail we can pick is of a beautiful bossum?

Answer: Make a video start to finish nothing but boobies.

2 months, 50 talented Titmouse animators and a whole lot of good times later we get “Boobies”.

Behind the scenes on “The Hidden Life of the Burrowing Owl” shoot. We shot most of the road scenes near the Carrizo Plain in California’s central valley.
I made a short animated film about a Burrowing Owl and you can finally see it on ITunes. Check it out.
