The awarded short Dr. Vogel tells the story of a boy with a very long uvula in his throat, which reminds him a bit of a worm. As he goes under for a tonsillectomy, the surgeon, Dr. Vogel (Dr. Bird) starts to look suspiciously like a bird.
In the fever dream that follows, the recovering boy is attacked by a bird, that wants to feed the boys uvula to his young.

This shot is the first shot in the film that shows the bird clearly. It also establishes the link with the worm.
Two plates were used: a background of a piece of the garden, and a foreground of a leaf.
The bird and worm are both completely CG. This breakdown shows the CG and compositing buildup.
