This film is family friendly.

A corkscrew with a screw loose battles a giant glass bottle to uncork seven mysterious lightning bugs trapped inside.

Director's Statement

While the short is computer generated, every object, surface, and sound was created with careful imperfections to achieve a handcrafted style. This handcrafted style was also woven into the original score where kitchen items were incorporated as instruments. With no dialogue, the story relies on visual story telling to express it themes of acceptance despite appearance and gratitude through understanding. This animation was created independently out of my apartment, over a 6 year period. After building a render farm in the spare bedroom and running up the electric bill, CORKY is finally complete.
