BIG BUDDY BLUE - A FREITAG STORY // COMMISSIONED SHORTFILM

This is the epic story about a trucker and his motorized best friend, living their dreamy lives on the open road. BIG BUDDY BLUE is part of the non-commercial initiative TARP BLANCHE launched by the Swiss Bag manufacturers FREITAG, who asked five different Teams of Animators to tell the story of "Freitag - From Truck Till Bag" in five completely different ways. As the guys from FREITAG gave us no restrictions whatsoever, we went kinda crazy and gave our creative minds free reign!
