New Jersey’s First Animated Feature

Chris Northrop and Mark Tordik have apparently taken a course at the Bill Plympton School of Filmmaking and decided to produce an animated feature completely by themselves. The New Jersey natives, both in their early-twenties, are currently deep into production on a hand-drawn 40-minute animated feature called DAY OF THE PIGMAN. Between the two of them, they are handling every production task, even going so far as to voice the lead characters themselves. The film recounts the tale of mad scientist Dr. Osgood whose research leads to the creation of the first Pigman and ultimately the destruction of humankind. The film was co-written by Northrop and Tordik, with Northrop handling all the animation responsibilities. PIGMAN is expected to be completed by Spring 2005.
