TOMTEN is the latest 3D animated / video projection short film by Mikkael Doczekalski (Graphset). An abstract narrative created under the thematic banner of “The city of a thousand lights, a Christmas story,” provided by the Centre des arts d’Enghien-les-Bains‘ competition. Accompanied by a soundtrack from Ben Frost.

Director’s official statement about the project can be read as follows (via Alpha-Ville):

An adaptation of an 1881 poem called ‘Tomtem’, written by Viktor Rydberg, a Swedish writer. The poem is about Christmas night with, of course, a post modern vision of Christmas, using a traditional Scandivian figure. My idea was to link the traditional approach with digital tools.

Check out the short teaser down at the bottom of this page. Happy Christmas!
