Birdbox Studio Christmas Card

(YouTube link)

Birdbox Studio has given us many delightful cartoons, so you’d think their Christmas card would be animated …and it is, sort of. What they have is an old-fashioned flip book animation with music and a special effect at the end. It’s not clear whether this is a single “card” they made to film or whether it has actually been mass-produced. Then again, it could be rigged with a bit of video magic. Either way, it’s gloriously odd and retro. If this is their Christmas card, you have to wonder how much money these guys spend on actual gifts! -via Tastefully Offensive

I call video trickery. If you give even a casual look at the card while it is folded, there is not only too little room in the windows for the animated cels to "flip" properly, there seems to be not enough room in the chimney for the amount of "snow" that puffs out of it. Very impressive nonetheless, but still only video trickery...
