CGI 3D Animated Short: “Life of Bri’ n Chris” – Directed by Michael Wakelam
Enjoy this funny CGI 3D Animated Short – A tough day for Chris the Australian chameleon goes from bad to worse in this comedy about two lizards. Set in London, lizards Chris and Bri’ share a flat, with Bri’ bringing in an income and Chris hopeful his next acting gig is just around the corner. Rejected once again for his Australian accent, Chris’s ego gets the better of him as he tries to prove a point.
About the film
Life of Bri’ n Chris written and directed by Michael Wakelam and was produced over 4 years in London by a small but dedicated volunteer team.
We were really challenged to create lovable characters in an 8 minute short and set out on this path with no budget and no team. It was remarkable how people joined the project – from Denis Baudin, the first team member other than Wakelam, who volunteered because of his love for the project, to Adelphoi Music Studio, who got on board to provide all the sound and music for the film, the team continued to grow.
The project was almost complete after two years, but stalled due to life’s curveballs before completing in 2016. In the end, it’s a project we’re all extremely proud of.
The original score and credits song for Life of Bri’ n Chris are all produced solely for the purpose of this film so there are no copyright issues.
