Christmas with the Moonies


Blue Zoo Animation

We'd like to introduce you to the Moonies; the chaotic couple who won't be getting the Christmas they expected this year.

When an evening of festivities goes very wrong, the Moonies try to hide any wrongdoing. Little do they know who they’re up against.

Christmas with the Moonies is the result of our 2018 seasonal shorts programme, a company-wide initiative renowned for its output of award-winning shorts that push creative boundaries, allow experimentation and are truly collaborative in process. Individuals have the opportunity to pitch their idea to the studio and the studio votes the most popular idea into production.
