A brand new indie feature by New York based animator Elliot Cowan who has been making shorts for a variety of US cable networks, including Nick Toons and Cartoon Network. Cowan will introduce this screening and also appears as a panelist in the RENDER Keynote Presentation on Indie features on Saturday 21 June.

Originally from Melbourne, one of his most successful personal projects has been a series of hilarious shorts featuring his hapless duo of anti-heroes Boxhead ane Roundhead. Recently, Cowan decided to star these two lovable little seekers in their own animated feature. The duo never have good days, but they never give up searching for their own uniquely imagined solutions and small truths that make life worth persevering with.

For his feature, Cowan has held onto the simple, graphic design of his two leads, but has rolled out a much more lush and intriguing range of backgrounds and environments. The writing is snappy, the voiceover work is pitch perfect and the look of the entire piece is graphically clever. This isn’t a slick CG blockbuster. It instead musters the creative resources on hand to embody what an animated feature is supposed to be like.
