The Legend

Our Beginning

Acowsay Cinema began in 2014 as the brainchild of Tyler Eichorst, owner + creative director. Beginning with the idea that video should be more than just moving images pieced together, but stories about people told through a more creative perspective. 

Often asked, "Why the name Acowsay?" Acowsay’s name came from Tyler’s college days and a friend’s bar in Madison, WI. He would cover up a tap at the bar with a napkin that read “Kowsay” so that patrons would ask, “What’s a ‘Kowsay’?” His friend would smirk and reply, “Duh, moo!”

A dad joke for sure, but what started as a joke has grown into a company that celebrates originality and tells the stories of some amazing people.
