THERE'S A MONSTER IN MY KITCHEN
There’s a Monster in My Kitchen is a powerful new film that can help to sound the alarm on the causes of Amazon destruction – and inspire more people to take action.
The animation was made by creative agency Mother and produced by four time Oscar nominated studio Cartoon Saloon. It is the sequel to the viral hit Rang Tan and features the voice of Golden Globe nominated Narcos star Wagner Moura.
It was the first co directing collaboration between Cartoon Saloon’s Tomm Moore and Fabian Erlinghäuser.
It’s a continuation from WolfWalkers film both in theme and style with many of the same artistic team involved and with music by Bruno Coulais.

LEDGE-END OF PHIL
The Ledge End of Phil (from accounting) is the story of Phil; an uptight office worker who gets trapped outside on the ledge of his building. With his co-workers gone home for the weekend Phil quickly realises his only hope of getting back inside is a seagull who has been trapped in the office.
Cowering on the thin strip of building ledge between two worlds; the safety of the office inside and the dangerous unknown of the exterior city around him, Phil must decide which side to embrace before time runs out.

A young wolf decides to confront his father. He had not seen him since he was a child.
Old Fangs is a story about a young man in the shape of a small wolf (referred to as Wolf), being confused and frustrated about his childhood. He has very fond memories of his father and his very early life living isolated in the forest, with his whole family.
His father, as the young Wolf remembers it, was a very strong person, a loner, but responsible, skilled and brave. The classical father figure.
