I'm In Love With This Live Action Winnie The Pooh Short

Created by Lynn Okimura and Jeff Lee of Motion Fiction, this quite wonderfully simple short is an excellent proof of concept for a live-action Winnie the Pooh picture.

Sure, the storytelling that sets up Pooh and Piglet's problem could be clearer but just look at them.

Feature film please, Disney. Think about what that would do to your merchandise sales.

(I'd actually guess this was made as an ad for Pooh toys, perhaps on spec – does anybody know for sure?)

The film is called Smackerel which is, Milne fans will know, a small quantity of honey – about a paw's load, in fact. Perfect title.
