Short Film

Life of Bri' n Chris is an 8 minute animated short film that premiered in 2016. Produced by Anthem and written and directed by Michael Wakelam, it tells a humorous tale of Bri', a Scottish common lizard, and Chris, a hapless Australian Chameleon.


The project took around 4 years and is a collaborative effort with artists and sponsors pooling talents to create the 8 minute film on almost no budget.


Initially screened at a private showing at Warner Bros in Soho, Life of Br'n Chris and is now available to watch online.

We'd like to thank our sponsors for the project. Chaosgroup provided VRAY licenses for us for a LONG time - longer than initially agreed. And Rayvision provided their Fox Render Farm for us to use - also a lot more than initially agreed. Couldn't have done it without these great partners.
