Sausage Party

The Story Behind Sausage Party

In an exclusive piece for ACM SIGGRAPH Affiliate Spark CG, writer Ian Failes delves into the backstory of the animated feature "Sausage Party," and the Vancouver-based studio that brought the film (and food) to life.

"Sausage Party" is an R-rated romp inside the lives of supermarket foods as they wage war against humans. Adults-only animated features with wide releases are rare beasts, but creators Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are perhaps hoping to buck that trend.

Read the full story to learn about the evolution of this novel concept for a movie, and the people at Nitrogen Studios who made it a reality.

If you want to hear more, "Sausage Party" Co-Director Conrad Vernon will be a keynote speaker at the VIEW Conference (another ACM SIGGRAPH Affiliate) in Turin, Italy, from October 24-28.
