The fable-inspired ‘Bird Karma’ is the first hand-drawn animated film to be produced by DreamWorks Animation since 2003, bringing traditional handmade, watercolour animation techniques to the world of digital production. It tells a tale of the consequences that befall a bird that is unable to change its nature. Our long-legged protagonist takes a liking to a multi-coloured fish, but soon discovers that sometimes you get as good as you give.
