    Plot: “The story of The Dam Keeper tells the tale of a young pig encumbered with an important job, and the meeting of a new classmate who changes everything. Set in a desolate future, one small town’s survival is solely due to a large windmill dam that acts as a fan to keep out poisonous clouds. Despite bullying from classmates and an indifferent public, the dam’s operator, Pig, works tirelessly to keep the sails spinning in order to protect the town. When a new student, Fox, joins Pig’s class, everything begins to change.”

    With a total running time of 18 minutes, the film is made up of over 8,000 paintings and blends traditional hand-drawn animation with lush brushstrokes to bring the directors’ celebrated painting-styles to life. The film was produced using Photoshop and TV Paint software.
