An outcast desk lamp and a houseful of cleaning appliances must join forces to save a cockroach from extermination.
Single Bulb Hero is an animated short film(3D animation), created by Wilyat Animation Studios.
Additional funds will go towards achieving a higher quality sound design for the finished film. This will enable us to hire a Foley Artist, Composer, and Sound Designer to collaborate and mix a 5.1 audio track for theatrical release DVD and Blu-Ray.
We travel back to 1950's suburbia and drop in on the Peterson family as they struggle with a small bug problem. Mr.Peterson calls the Exterminator...
Our story follows a lone insect that has been trapped inside their home when it is suddenly covered in a heavily striped circus tent to be fumigated(Gassed for bugs). Having been separated from the other bugs when the house was sealed, and with no path of escape, it would seem all hope is lost…until he meets an unlikely friend, the Single Bulb Hero; a lamp with nothing to lose. Can our heroic lamp stand between the exterminator and his plan? Steal a glimpse into a world of excitement, where appliances reign supreme.
Our vision is to create a film that embodies the same spirit as those of Disney/Pixar, with a strong focus on story matter and character development(Think Brave Little Toaster meets The Incredibles). The script has evolved into something very exciting and we can't wait to bring it to life. Once finished the film will run about 8 minutes in length and be used to seek funding for a feature length version.
