Augenblick Studios Starts Production for ‘Adventures of Drunky’ Feature

Sam Rockwell, Jeffrey Tambor, Steve Coogan, Nina Arianda, Dave Attell and Tyler the Creator star in R-rated animated feature directed by Aaron Augenblick and produced at Cartuna.

BROOKLYN, NY -- Augenblick Studios (Ugly Americans, Wonder Showzen, Superjail) has started production on the animated feature film The Adventures of Drunky. The R-rated comedy stars Sam Rockwell, Jeffrey Tambor, Steve Coogan, Nina Arianda, Dave Attell, and Tyler the Creator. The supporting cast includes Abby Elliot, John Leguizamo, Jon Glaser, Jay Pharoah, Noel Wells, James Adomian, Larry Murphy, Rachel Butera, and Randy Pearlstein. Voice recording wrapped earlier this month.

The Adventures of Drunky follows Drunky (Rockwell), a barfly who finds himself in the middle of a cosmic bet between God (Tambor) and the Devil (Coogan) over the fate of the Earth. With his life destroyed, Drunky must travel through Heaven and Hell to rescue the girl he loves (Arianda) and save the world. Assisting Drunky on his quest are an alley cat (Tyler The Creator) and a demon (Attell).

The film is being directed by Aaron Augenblick from his original concept. Lisa Thomas and Kris Wollinger of Augenblick Studios will produce along with James Belfer and Daniel Shepard of Cartuna. Peter Lengyel and Adam Belfer will executive produce. The screenplay was written by Aaron Bergeron.

“The Adventures of Drunky is everything I love about cartoons,” says Augenblick. “It’s hand drawn, surreal, and funny as hell.” The Adventures of Drunky marks a new trend in independently produced animated features for adult audiences. It will be the first animated feature film ever produced in Brooklyn, NY.
