Blinkink and Zombie Studio’s campaign for the Born Free Foundation and UK ad agency Engine aims to raise awareness of the issue of canned hunting. Set to the Academy Award-winning song “Born Free” performed by Matt Monro, this film titled The Bitter Bond tells the story of a lion keeper and her cub that ends in the ultimate betrayal. Its unique animation style is the result of three months’ work by Zombie Studio, which combined the richness and beauty of hand-crafted sets with 3D animation for the film.
