And on the fifth day... things don't go according to plan when the birds refuse to behave. This whimsical take on the story of creation is an early work by talented and humorous animator Paul Berry (1961-2001). After studying at Wolverhampton Polytechnic, Berry joined the Cosgrove Hall animation studio in Manchester. In 1991 he was Oscar nominated for his short horror film 'The Sandman'.
