‘Miro Wine’ is a reference to the fact that the kererū is known to eat the fermented berries of the Miro tree and subsequently become intoxicated. The film was born from our love of New Zealand and stop-motion animation. In a media world that is quickly being taken over by highly photorealistic CGI, we wanted to create something that goes back to our roots as kiwis and animators. Although mimicking the style of ‘hand-made’ stop-motion animation, Miro Wine is fully digital which allowed us to streamline the process of animation while introducing the imperfections that come with a traditional stop-motion film.
