Anthem Studios releases hilarious animated short, 'Life of Bri' n Chris' online

  (August 02, 2017)

LONDON, Aug. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Life of Bri' n Chris, a short animation produced in London on a shoe string budget over 4 years is being launched online today. Written and Directed by Michael Wakelam, an Australian based in London, the film is the story of Bri', a Scottish Common Lizard, and Chris, a hapless Australian Chameleon.

Bri' and Chris share a flat in London, and Chris, a super positive out of work actor, has a bruised ego and just can't bear being out done anymore. A hilarious serious of events unfold as Chris overly competitive attitude leads to a crazy accident and maybe the biggest role of his life!

This was a passion project for Wakelam, who spent his spare time committed to the film. "Projects like this are undertaken in the hope of getting bigger opportunities in the future, but they're a great experience on their own and given I had no budget, I'm really proud of the result."


"I really loved the challenge of creating lovable characters within 7 or 8 minutes - characters you'd want to see again." Born in Australia, Wakelam moved to London ten years ago and began working in motion design and after embarking on this project, he went on to found Anthem Studios, a storytelling studio based in London. Inspired by great studios such as Dreamworks Animation and Pixar, Wakelam adds "I've been so inspired by these studios over the years, in fact when I saw the first Toy Story, I went right back in and watched it again! And in all fun, this story may explain why Pixar's Newt was cancelled several years back."

The project couldn't have happened without an amazing volunteer crew and the generous support of companies such as Adelphoi Music, Chaos Group and Fox Render Farm. Chaos Group provided access to their powerful Vray rendering software. Adelphoi Music, a talented group who work on global agency projects supported the film from the start, working on sound design, score and an original song. Fox Render Farm, based in China, provided the rendering power.

Along with the film, Anthem will be releasing several clips highlighting various people and parts of the film making process, starting today.
