Tonic House, a rapidly growing animation studio based in Berkeley, CA and under the leadership of Daisuke "Dice" Tsutsumi and Robert Kondo (both Pixar veterans), received its first academy award nomination this past February with their first short film, The Dam Keeper. Now, the studio has exciting plans to expand their creative output by taking advantage of the success of The Dam Keeper short film and building its world and characters into a feature length adaptation and two comic book-like sequels! If you have not seen the original short film, I highly suggest catching it either on iTunes or Amazon because it truly is a remarkable piece of art. Find out more about The Dam Keeper feature and comic books after the break!
