The Lumberjack and the Woodpecker is a CG animated short film that explores the relationship between Forrest the lumberjack and his son Woody.  On one of their daily ventures into the pine forest where he plies his craft, Forrest spies a magnificent cedar tree that he becomes determined to chop down.  


Lumberjack was created by a passionate and talented crew of students in the Animation B.F.A. program at the Savannah College of Art and Design.  From May 2020 to May 2021, the crew poured their hearts and minds into production to create a film all about the importance of family.
