Phillip, the Safety Egg

Mike Owens made this at Puny in Minneapolis. “It’s our first in house short developed from a character that has lived in my subconscious for many years,” says Owens on his blog. Good stuff, says I.

    Thank you for posting this! Not only was it extremely entertaining and well-done, but I am from Mpls and had no idea Puny existed. Looking forward to doing some more research on this!

    Weird, Puny is in my old neighborhood, about a block away from my old apartment! It was pretty trashy when I still lived there, but cool to see that section of town is thriving with Puny being a part of it.

    Coolio. Very funny and great expressions on the egg. Only comment would be the levels on some of the dialogue felt a bit low at times. Great Stuff though!
