More than 250 million viewers have watched a 17-second clip of a baby panda sneezing and frightening its mother. The clip, which was captured by chance, gets 150,000 views a day and has gone viral, even being referenced on TV Shows such as 30 Rock and South Park.

But the capacity for a chance upload to inspire a full work is being taken to new heights with Sneezing Baby Panda The Movie.

 Film-makers Lesley Hammond and Jenny Walsh know an opportunity when they see one. The pair captured the original sneeze when filming a Giant Panda documentary in China.
