Battle of the Butchers

Share Collapse

Author Comments

At the turn of the century in New York City, two nextdoor neighbors start their own small businesses, but trouble ensues when they find out they’re both butchers.

This was my final for junior year at KCAI. I wanted to make a more kid-friendly and silent narrative just to see if I could make an interesting cartoon that wouldn't get kicked out of Sunday School. Biggest influences here were Fleischer cartoons and some old comics I found at Half Price Books. Over the summer I've been adding a little more visual flair while Oddboy's been making that incredible score. Seriously, props to him because I think the music is a ton of what sells this thing. It's been harder to make than I anticipated, but I hope y'all enjoy!

Well done! No other words need be said

Great work! Great adaptation of classic American Animation! I can't nit pick at this one! Superb!
Keep It Up!

Where is the Oscar!!??
Just joking....
Good job!

Cool movie!

The song is nice and fits the theme of movie, the drawings are just amazing and awesomely well animated, and even though the story is not top-originality-super-stunning-plot-etc., it's still very satisfying considering the perfection of the other elements :)

Overall, nice job! Keep up the good work :D
