A Fistful of Presents
Hi, I’m Cole Clark and thanks for watching my film, A Fistful of Presents! I carefully crafted every pixel of every frame from the initial storyboards to animation and final color grading. I hope people watching A Fistful of Presents experience the creative and cinematic vision I designed the film to have. Westerns and Holiday films separately have an amazing lineage, and I hope A Fistful of Presents serves as an intelligent response to both. In a pastiche mix-up between holiday films and Spaghetti Westerns, an outlaw confronts Santa on Christmas eve in the old west. The outlaw, reeling from painful memories of receiving coal for Christmas wants revenge. Santa, on the other hand, is not afraid of violence and has other plans.

Christmas Card to Friends
A friend of mine, Grant Harold, sent me a song he wrote for Chrismas this year, and I liked its simple message. So I rang my friend Nathan Deceasar and asked if he wanted to join me in turning it into a card for friends. Grant and Nathan and I call our little trio “Group Hug”.
Christmas Time at 3D Characters

Dana Dorian – Dobbies Christmas
This is a spot for Vodafone I just finished. The project was brought to us by Grey’s agency creative director Simon Brotherson. I worked with character designer Sanna-Annukka who did a previous campaign with her lovely graphic 2d characters! I wanted to bring them in another dimension (no pun intended) and I put them in 3d using the famous scandinavian wooden dala horse as a reference. The result is this little film full of colourful and glossy characters! I hope you enjoy!
