Roush’s Hidden Gem Lands at Annecy

Mike Roush’s 5-minute film was recently accepted in the Short Film category at the 2008 Annecy International Animated Film Festival. The Hidden Life of the Burrowing Owl, which was produced by Shannon Prynoski and Titmouse Inc., was animated in Flash, and composited with photo-realistic environments. Allison Craig and David Vandervoot joined Roush on the animation effort, and it marks the first release from the Titmouse Shorts project. Here’s the full short.

I saw a preview of this film last month, and it’s an exceptional short; subtle, clever and completely unique. Bravo gang, and congrats on your nomination.


  1. AWESOME! Talking about taking Flash to the next level. The animation is seamless with the filmed BG’s and looks great. Awesome job, Mike! I can’t wait to see the whole finished product!

  2. This looks awesome. I can’t wait to see the whole thing.
