Something Animal

ROARG! is a decadent cookies factory owned by Sra. Orni. Its workers, a bear, a parrot, a porcupine and a goat, suddenly fall into a deep depression which prevents them from moving forward with a crucial order for the company. Desperately, Orni hires an experienced psychoanalyst, Dr. Animal, to treat them and they can comply with the delivery as soon as possible. Dr. Animal has the challenge of being accepted promptly by the workers who believe they do not need his presence, and find the causes that have made them the unfortunate animals they are now.

Director Biography - Catalina Arroyave, David Correa, Sara Buitrago

We were born in Medellin in 1989, the year in which The Berlin Wall fell and the first episode of The Simpsons was broacast. We grew up in it. We studied Social Communication in EAFIT univerdity, and there we met. We formed with some classmates of career an audiovisual production group that we called Croma, and after winning a contest, Catalina and David created with some friends Rara, the audiovisual group in which both work now. In the last semester of our career, we decided to risk by performing an animated series, and so we started with the production of Algo Animal, a web series of 11 episodes, which aims soon to have its second season.
