Santa may be wearing a red suit but hes got anything but a red attitude in the latest animation Bent Image Lab did for a TV Funhouse segment on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE (Dec. 18, 2004). The studio did an incredible looking stop-motion five-minute 'Rudolph'-type bit (written by Robert Smigel) poking fun at racial and political bias and intolerance.
The amazingly rich production took the studio just two weeks to complete.You may view the short at www.bentimagelab.com/video/qt/SNL-04smaller.mov and find it relevant for before and after Christmas sentiments.
