Gnomeland Security — Protecting Against Animal Terrorism

USA Gnomeland Security Badge

Dark Igloo (co-founded by Digital Design grad Mark Miller and his business partner Dave Franzese) along with a small group of their friends — {group theory} (production co.: Sagmeister’s The Happy Film, Moving Windmills) and Shift Editorial (animation director: David Bowie’s “Jeans and a T-shirt”; documentary on the band GenesisCome Rain or Shine) — have  made a 16 minute cartoon called Gnomeland Security.

As Mark tells us, “Gnomeland Security is the adventures of five idiotic gnomes struggling to protect our nation from the animal kingdom’s foulest terrorists. From the perspective of most Americans, animal terrorism looks a lot like “natural occurrences,” which is why you’ve had no idea that this secret task force of mercenary delinquents has been keeping your ass safe … until now!”

The Gnomes who will secure America

The series is pretty hilarious and features a cool mixture of animation and live action elements.

Have a look at the trailer — and if you want to see some episodes and ridiculous Behind the Scenes videos, (plus to get the straight dope on “Animal Terrorism”) check out Gnomeland Security HQ. (Warning: swearing, silly behaviour, and hilarious foulness.)
