About the film: Le Lapin de Noël / The Christmas Rabbit is an animated short that tells a rather simple story but pushes its boundaries almost to the absurd. A banal event (the death of a beloved pet) is going to generate a multitude of unforeseen situations, culminating on an unexpected high note.
The entire movie is hand-drawn animation (for a total of over 10.000 drawings) and the only digital element is the colouring of the characters. Learn more about the process here.
