Director’s statement

"In the films I make, I always try to find a combination of humor and drama. OINK is ideal because it contains all the necessary elements. I made OINK on the basis of a live-action interpretation, giving the puppets true emotions and narrating the story in a way which makes you forget you are watching an animation."
