The animation ‘Single’ is an episodic rom-com adventure through the shenanigans and nightmares of modern dating. Housemates Bridie, Luke and Tilly become immersed in Sydney’s bounty of endless dating possibilities as they navigate blind dates, suburb-wide polyamorous relationships, (literal) catfishing and dating-app existential dread. Finding your eternal soulmate is hard when the inner west dating pool feels like a rapid-fire, kaleidoscopic fever dream. Their hilariously unsuccessful quests for love ultimately lead them to interrogate their own friendship
WHERE WE ARE AT:
We are currently in the development stage, and are looking into going into pre-production of a short animation film that captures the ‘Single’ world.
KEY CREATIVE TEAM:
Creator/ Director: Tilly Robba
Writers: Ang Collins and Michael Costi
Producer: Steph Jowett
Sound Designer/Composer: James Peter Brown
Voice Actors: Bridie McKim and many more to come!
WHY US, WHY NOW:
Young Australians who grew up on ‘Love Actually’ need a rom-com that’s ‘actually’ relatable.
‘Single’ has a comedic core that’s different from your average cartoon. We tell our jokes from a previously unvoiced place: our jokes uplift, and don’t punch down. It’s an animation for people that reflect our creative team: which includes people who are young/queer/people with disability/people of colour.
The characters, jokes and content are made for everyone; it’s fresh and intersectional; it’s a story currently absent on-screen, and especially from animation!
HOW YOUR DONATIONS WILL BE USED:
Many of our key creatives are working on a volunteer basis. All funds raised will pay the long hard hours that the animators, sound designer and composer will be working.

WHAT’S THE OUTCOME?
A 10 minute animation that we will use to enter into short film festivals, and later to develop our goal of producing an animated series.
