Not to be missed showcase of studio’s in-house animated shorts program will screen live in theaters once again; coming March 22 in Vancouver and March 25 in Los Angeles and New York.
Emmy award-winning animation studio, Titmouse is bringing back its famous annual 5 Second Day shorts compilation screenings to theaters, coming to Vancouver, Los Angeles, and NY. For those of you who have never had the pleasure of seeing one of the studio’s past screenings, they’re a hoot! This year, the program includes more than 70 original shorts created by Titmouse artists from its LA, New York, and Vancouver studios.
Each year, Titmouse sets aside one day where everyone at the company can produce a 5 second animated short. The studio closes so staff can make whatever project is swimming around in their heads. No holds barred. The shorts are not rated by the MPAA; the screening is intended for an adult audience.
The tradition has evolved since it started in 2008. Since then, the complexity and length of films, and creative collaboration across departments has skyrocketed. Some artists will work on ambitious ideas for months. In the end, the artists retain control of the short. To date more than 1,000 5 Second Day cartoons have been created; the annual event is deeply woven into the culture of the company.
With a history of sold out shows in all markets, advance ticket purchases are recommended. NOTE: the shorts are not rated by the MPAA. The screenings are intended for an adult audience.
