Gothic Horror

Count Macula is a member of an influential Pencilvanyan family of fountain pens. Their cosy world turns upside down when a horde of brutish biros swarm the city and force him to flee. During his exile, an eccentric old man helps Macula to develop powerful dark arts but when he returns, he discovers that the biggest change is yet to come.

Discover the dark side to stationery in this simply amazing piece of animation from our friends at Studio Tinto. This was a collaborative project between Sally Bailey, Chris Harrington, Nick Harrison and Alex Amelines.
