Blue Zoo Animation Studio wishes everyone a Happy Christmas with their new festive short.

In a tradition initiated by Blue Zoo Animation Studio, everyone in the studio has the opportunity to pitch their idea and everyone votes for their favourite

This year's requirement was to include fur;  Simone Giampaolo and Francesco Mazza , who won the vote, experimented on some techniques they hadn't used before.

Set in a luminous snowy forest, Lynx and Birds tells the story of a family of red cardinals, mother and chick, trying to survive the winter. However, their peaceful hibernatiion is interrupted by an encounter with a lynx...

 The short also encourages support of endangered big cats.
