Sunshine Barry And The Disco Worms is about Barry, an earthworm trying to wriggle away from his position at the bottom of the food chain.
Rather than accept a life as a middle manager in a composting
business, he yearns to be the star of the world's greatest disco band.
The project was recently showcased at the Cartoon Movie co-production
market in Babelsberg. The $4.9 million project is directed by Thomas
Borch Nielsen and produced by Nina Crone and Solveig Langeland.
