The Dam Keeper , an original animated short film by feature animation artists Robert Kondo and Dice Tsutsumi, tells the tale of a young pig encumbered with an important job, and the meeting of a new classmate who changes everything. A first-time collaboration between some of the most talented artists in animation, The Dam Keeper made its world premiere as an official selection at the 2014 Berlin International Film Festival and is slated to make it's US premiere at The New York International Children's Film Festival this spring.

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.

Made up of over 8,000 paintings, The Dam Keeper blends traditional hand-drawn animation with lush brushstrokes to bring Kondo and Tsutsumi's celebrated painting-style to life like never before. The Danish actor Lars Mikkelsen of television's Forbrydelsen (The Killing) , and BBC's Sherlock , narrates this timeless fable. Directors Robert Kondo and Dice Tsutsumi are known for their art direction on such beloved films as Ice Age , Ratatouille , Monsters University and Toy Story 3 .

The Dam Keeper is a really interesting project. Two Pixar art directors in their down time at work embarked in a sort of “co-op” mission, which resulted in creating a short film called The Dam Keeper , which was eventually picked up by Magnolia Pictures for a distribution deal.

Now, Daisuke “Dice” Tsutsumi and Robert Kondo are continuing the saga of Pig and Fox, but setting it five years later, continuing with the themes of fog and the windmill. However, this time there is talk of adapting the series of books (and there will be at least one more in the series), into both another short film or perhaps a tv series or maybe even one and the other!
