Some of the best European Animation Mentor graduates worked on that great looking Christmas short film done for the BBC by Studio Soi in Germany. The Gruffalo is a very charming child story books created by Julia Donaldson.
Studio Soi is with Studio AKA, their British representative, is one of my favourite studios and I would highly suggest you to check their other shortfilms and commercial work like “Ernst im herbst” (no clue what it means ;-) ), “Tom and Lilly” and “Olis chance”. I found some more shortfilms in the past but I can’t find the links anymore (Flash websites look fancy but they never get updated….). http://www.studiosoi.de/
