Otmar is a really short film created by Animator Chad Thompson and I for Yeah Haus- there are a series of these we’ve got on the back burner called “Close Encounters”. Otmar was super fun to imagine up- and to have a creative short to share . Plus.. I mean, who doesn’t love a purple penguin!?

Otmar was named after Otmar Gutmann the creator of Pingu, an animated children's show that I loved as a child.
