Mac ‘n’ Cheese

The drug-fueled animated short Mac ‘n’ Cheese quickly became ragingly popular after its release.

A short but thrilling ride designed for the internet audience. It received over a million views in a month and a half and the positive viewers’ responses were beyond any of our expectations. Synopsis: When you find yourself running scared and running out of energy, there’s only a few options left to outrun your opponent through the southern desert. Stopping at nothing, watch these two guys wear each other out and rip through boundaries hitherto unbroken. Enjoy the ride!

Making of a drug-fueled ride

Here is a short insight into the production process of our graduation film, Mac ‘n’ Cheese. And yes, we were young…

Each day of production we would ask ourselves: "Can we make this sicker?", and we pushed each time to do so.
