Animated Short “Ormie” Becomes A Feature

Alcon Entertainment has scored a deal with Canadian animation studio Arc Productions to turn Arc’s animated short “Ormie” into a feature film reports Variety.

Rob Silvestri created the piece which follows a pig named Ormie and his various unsuccessful attempts to reach a jar of cookies on top of a fridge.

The short has won awards at festivals in Savannah, Palm Springs and Seattle along with the New York Children’s Festival. Arc was also the animation house behind this year’s “Gnomeo and Juliet”.
