Patrick in Town

Patrick in Town

In the near future humans of Earth turned vegan to avoid climate crisis and animals and humans can now communicate - and love each other freely - but what challenges do they face?

Patrick in Town is a character-driven absurd comedy melodrama series set in the near-future ecological utopia. It centers around Patrick (who was a pioneering vegan even before the whole planet had to turn vegan in order to avert mass extinction) and his wife who is a Cow. The short explore their past and present cohabitation, and a plethora of surrounding characters - human and non-human animals - as we reveal what a vegan future can look like for planet Earth and its symbiotic population.

Director’s statement
We have been kept apart by covid but we want to find ways to remotely build up our dream project. This project is carefully considered in context and built on thorough research on the topic of animal rights, climate change, anthropocentrism and veganism. The pilot episode already peaked viewers interest, and touched the surface on diversity and gender roles and norms. We believe now is the most important time to create inspiring content for positive social change, with social commentary - not as shock tactics, but inspiring hope for the future, and educating about sustainable ways of life through alternative 'fun entertainment'. We want to make a short film which can be streamable on VOD platforms, and to build a recognizable identity which rises from niche culture of adult animation into the wider public circles.
