Smurfin’ Around The Christmas Tree!

This great bit of 2D dancing Smurf animation is from Sony Pictures Animation’s fun holiday short film, THE SMURFS: A CHRISTMAS CAROL (2011), which was directed by my buddy Troy Quane. The short is very true to Peyo’s “look” and possesses the type of fun we’re striving for with our all-new CG animated Smurf movie.

It’s always a challenge to interpret a traditional 2D cartoon into a more dimensional world, but my artistic team and I are really enjoying the challenge. I can’t wait to unveil the results.
