Ormie The Pig is an animation movie about a pig named Ormie, he is pig in every sense of the word. Pig see cookie. Pig want cookie. But they are out of reach…or are they? See Ormie’s attempts to gain the warm sweet taste that is his obsession. There is simplicity to this short animation that is suitable and in particular children will love the physical comedy.
The set and props are limited but Ormie has many tries to get these cookies and they pretty much all fail in one way or another – this is a given. The more important thing though is that almost all of his failures are funny; when something comes at you so quickly as this short does it is easy to have a very hit/miss content but here the jokes really do hit home much more often than they don’t – and if they don’t then it was only a few seconds wasted.
Watch the short film that has film festival audiences laughing and cheering. Ormie has garnered 8 Festival Awards including Best Short Film (Savannah FF 2010, Palm Springs Int’l Shorts Fest 2010, Sprockets 2010, Seattle Int’l FF 2010) and the Audience Award (New York Int’l Children’s FF 2011)
