Web Christmas Watch 2018


Welcome back to Web Animation Watch- our regular round-up of the latest and greatest animation released online. This week it's our Christmas special! We'll be back in the new year with a whole new year of web animation.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!



The magical night of Gaspar

Chilean studio Punkrobot, Oscar winners for the short Bear Story made this beautiful Christmas film. It follows a firefighter who has to spend Christmas away from his family when he's given the Christmas Eve shift. The animation is utterly gorgeous, and if the story doesn't move you- you're probably the Grinch himself! In Spanish with English Subtitles. Feliz Navidad!




Xmas Hold 'Em


Hailing from Passion Animation Studios, this festive film is very short- at just one minute, but is exceptionally well done. Featuring a Poker game between Santa and his Reindeer, this is extremely funny with some outstanding character designs.

Christmas With The Moonies

British Studio Blue Zoo have made a tradition of releasing a new video at Christmas, and they're always reliably great. This year, they've decided to go down a somewhat darker path. We don't want to give anything away, but suffice to say- this isn't one to share with the little ones in your life!


What would Christmas be without love?

This might be another advert, commissioned by Erste Group,- a European Bank- but it's still one of the cutest things you will see this season! It Follows a hedgehog, whose spines prevent him from getting too close to his friends and loved ones- but soon gets a Christmas surprise. Seriously adorable stuff.  (No, YOU'RE crying).



The Predator Holiday Special

Nothing says Christmas like a stop-motion Holiday Special! This is a long way from the Rankin-Bass works of old, however. Made to promote the home release of the sci-fi thriller The Predator, this short explores what happens when Santa and his elves encounter the dreadlocked alien hunters. Very much not suitable for kids!
