This is my first christmas movie, send out as a video greeting card to friends.
The little bird Bird dreams of a real christmas eve with presents and a christmas tree. Unfortunately, he doesn't have any money and therefore attempts to steal a tree. But how can he avoid the owner of the christmas tree store and his employee, the security penguin? Birdy tries to trick them...
- Birdy's Christmas was made and cut in about eight hours.
- The film was finished on the 24th of December - the day, when the christmas presents are given out.
- It's like a trick film without tricks: The figures were moved using pens or strings.
- This is the first Pinguin TV film which was edited digitally on my computer.
- The whole film was shot in my kitchen. Three large, white pieces of paper were used to create a film "studio".
- The owner of the christmas tree store is in fact Elrond from "Lord of the Rings".
