The Stressful Adventures of Boxhead & Roundhead

Late 2008 I made this little film to pass the time inbetween jobs.
I used a track by rock and roll supergroup They Might Be Giants, figuring that if someone didn't want me to use the music, they'd just pull the clip.
As it happens I got a phone call from the band who told me I was very welcome to use the song.
Nice, huh?
The actual track is called Employee Of The Month.

As of late 2009, nine Boxhead and Roundhead short animated films have been completed. They've been in circulation at film festivals all over the world since 2006, playing some of the most important festivals in the world.

The Boxhead and Roundhead film, Brothers In Arms, won Best Animation at the River's Edge Film Festival, Best Film in Non Verbal Communication at the Animazing Spotlight and garnered a special mention at the Banjaluka International Festival of Animation.
In the words of the festival, "The Stressful Adventures of Boxhead & Roundhead: Brothers in Arms, a film that depicts the story about the futility of war using minimum resources and achieving maximum expression".

The most recent Boxhead & Roundhead film, "The Thing In The Distance", won a Golden Pencil Award at the prestigious 2D Or Not 2D Festival in Seattle, Washington. Festival director and animation legend Tony White said of the film, "Here’s a perfect example real innovation and yet a traditional approach combined. The somewhat spooky but extremely enjoyable “The Thing in the Distance” by Elliot Cowan is one you must not miss. Suffice it to say, you won’t have seen anything’ like it before!".

I'm always happy to give B&R compilation DVDs away. Write to elliotcowanimation@yahoo.com
