More about the project here.

A collaborative development process “helped [ANL] decide on both the scope and look of the project,” according to EP Jon O’Hara. “We won the assignment based on an incredible stop-motion CG look we gave to several beloved Nick characters, and then our original concept snowballs and their hijinks.” This digital stop-mo effect, meant to recall the old Rudolph and Frosty specials from Rankin/Bass per the project brief, “inspired [ANL] to build a world rooted in tactile materials, but with the freedom to create some wilder narratives.”

 


Unplug!

"UNPLUG!" is the first lesson in Richard Williams’ book: "The Animator's Survival Kit". Richard added some drawings to the lesson, illustrating what happened one day he went to see Milt Kahl.
I've always found those drawings very inspiring and the story was just screaming to be animated. The audio is taken from a Richard Williams’ masterclass video where, luckily for me, he re-enacted the story!.

PS: I did not listen to music while doing this.
Well... just a tiny bit.
