DreamWorks Animation has named an all-Australian, all-star voice cast for Larrikins, their upcoming musical comedic adventure, for which Tim is writing the music and lyrics, as well as directing with Chris Miller.

Hugh Jackman, Margot Robbie, Rose Byrne, Naomi Watts, Jacki Weaver, Ben Mendelsohn, Josh Lawson, Damon Herriman, and Ewen Leslie all join the 2018 feature. Tim will also be voicing a role.

Tim: “I feel so lucky to be working with such a stunning cast. It’s genuinely thrilling to have such talented artists put their faith in this anarchic, slightly nuts Aussie musical!”

Larrikins tells the story of a little bilby who finds himself launched on a musical adventure across the mystical and untamed Australian Outback.

Bonnie Arnold and Mireille Soria (Co-Presidents of Feature Animation): “Larrikins is a smart, hilarious, completely unique animated film that breaks convention as it takes audiences on an unexpected journey into the vast Australian Outback. Tim and Chris have masterfully blended a heartwarming story into the attitude and humor packed into these characters. It’s ultimately a film about being courageous enough to do the right thing for others, even if that sometimes puts you on a course that runs opposite the status quo.

Larrikins (which is Australian slang for maverick or rebel) is an all-animal rock-n-roll road-movie musical from an original idea written by Harry Cripps and produced by DreamWorks Animation’s Gregg Taylor.

I just want to know what skills, education, and all that jazz I would need to get a job for DreamWorks Animation as an artist/storyboard/animation person. This is obviously a very hard position to get in a company like this I know. I’m going to be a high school freshman this year if that matters by the way.
