BosBros is co-producer of the short movie Tex, which we produced in collaboration with Ka-Ching Cartoons in the context of Now or Never !, an initiative of the Dutch Media Fund.
Cartoon figure Tex Bummer (12) is living with his parents in the live action Netherlands. After a long period of unemployment, his father is able to work as an actor in a number of cartoony safe traffic commercials. The Dutch people find their family very strange and even laugh at them. They call the cartoon characters “Ani’s”. Tex soon finds himself accepted only if he fools himself: after all, cartoon characters are to laugh about.
Tex wants to return home as soon as possible but changes his mind when he meets the 11-year-old Evie, a live action girl of Antillean origin. Tex falls in love with her straight away. From now on, he would like to stay in the Netherlands and put everything in order to conquer her heart.
