Cowboy Film Review: Rob ‘n’ Ron
The 3D animated short film of young filmmakers from Tumblehead, an award-winning production company located in Viborg, Denmark is based on a Western lifestyle that two outlaw brothers: Ron ‘n’ Ron. In this miniature spaghetti western with a 2D cartooning influence, Rob is plotting their biggest heist yet.
Cowboys of all ages are sure to enjoy this in-house short film. The combination of the 3D rigging and other animated creation methods to bring the Western lifestyle to life, such as, the tumbleweed, and the character design of these two outlaw brothers riding their hobby horses is both awesome and extremely hilarious. Magnus I. Møller worked on Saun the Sheep during his internship at
Aardman Features and co-directed the student film Elk Hair Caddis, where he was nominated by the Hollywood Film Festival. In 2011, he founded Tumblehead together with Peter Smith, and is currently directing commercials and creating in-house projects like this short film.
