Short Synopsis: We teamed up with CyW and Blur Films/ Outsider Director Chris Balmond to create Amazon Prime’s epic Christmas spot. The commercial showcases the friendship between a Zookeeper and snarling CG hyena called Hattie who with the help of her friend and Amazon Prime – learns to laugh.

VFX Supervisor at The Mill, Adam Droy, states “As with all the creature work we do, discovering the character of Hattie would be on the forefront of our minds throughout the production. We had to tiptoe the delicate line between a photoreal hyena and a likable, loveable character – so endearing that Carl, the zookeeper, would come to her aid in her times of need.”
