12 Animations of Christmas!

// Featured


At the end of a tumultuous year and with the Christmas weekend fast approaching, we at Skwigly appreciate that it’s not always easy to get into the holiday spirit. So to give you a boost in the ol’ baubles we’ve rounded up twelve seasonally-themed animations from some of our favourite creative teams as well as a few up-and-comers. Have a peruse below and get your holly and jolly on, friends:

The talented team at Blue Zoo have once again pulled off another Christmas corker in their follow up to last year‘s More Stuff. In No More Stuff the holiday season is commemorated with an epic, trailer-style pastiche chock full of pop culture references and yet more bare-assed elves!

In 24 Days of Torture Stuttgart/London-based creative duo VIK and NES lift the lid on the daily torments and terrors our unwitting advent calenders must endure each year.

The ever off-kilter Rumpus Animation inflict some seasonal trauma of their own in A Christmas Rumpus.

Recent graduate Snezhana Mommsen shows off some of Santa (and helper)’s sweet moves in the looping exercise Dancing Santa.

Mukpuddy hit a milestone with the tenth anniversary of their annual Drunk Santa holiday greetings. Here’s to ten more years!

Evidently Santa isn’t all that he seems in Mummu‘s tribute to the docudrama craze of late – Claus: Behind The Tinsel.

An inebriated snowman tells it like it is in the lead-up to announcing Who Won Christmas? from Arcus Studios

Fabulous craftsmanship on display in Tim Wheatley‘s elegantly designed Nutcracker Zoetrope.

Paris-based production company Troublemakers cause some merry mischief in the short, sweet and wonderfully-designed Merry Christmas.

Seasonal shenanigans take their toll in The Mill‘s contribution to the holiday season The Dinner.

Trunk‘s offering comes in the form of some merry mograph; enjoy their swish’n’stylish GIF Christmas card!

Festive ribaldry abound in UK studio Sun and Moon‘s quirkily charming offering Have Yourself a Lucky Little Christmas.
