After finishing The Romantic, I wanted to jump headfirst into another animated feature – a holiday family film titled Burp’s Christmas(later changed to The Holly & The Ivy). Unfortunately, the project never took off. What remains is this short proof of concept film, a little nugget we were planning on showing to investor’s to raise money.

Directed & animated by Michael Patrick Heneghan
Narrated by Garrison Keillor
Sound Design by Nathan V. Terry
