Local Animator Releases Short Film Online

Barko, is free to see online for the first time ever!  
Allison Craig, local animator, is premiering it on Vimeo starting today. 
Produced by Titmouse Inc (famous for Turbo F.A.S.T on Netflix, Motorcity on Disney XD, and several shows on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim), Barko is the story of a lonely circus dog with a vigorous fear of hot dogs. The short screened at several festivals in 2010 and won a few awards (Austin Film Festival, Los Angeles Animation Festival and Red Rock Film Festival among others).

Allison will also be showing works and animation at the Slam Bam Comic Jam at the Art Academy opening Friday.


  1. Amazing work! —congratulations!

  2. Allison,
    Very nice animation and character design and backgrounds and lighting! This is a huge project - amazing that you got it funded by Titmouse. It must have taken quite awhile to complete. Congratulations on the finished piece - you should be quite proud.
    The tortured underdog carries a lot of empathy. Were the backgrounds created in Photoshop? What software did you mainly use for the animation?
