A Holiday Dream

December 22nd 2023

Amid the merriment and mayhem of the Christmas celebrations, it can be easy to forget those unseen or under appreciated people behind the scenes who make it all possible, from cab drivers to nurses, to the family member who cooks for days to give us a wonderful festive feast.  

To honour these unsung holiday season heroes, the always amazing Niceshit teamed up with great friend and artist Lobulo to craft an absolutely delightful yuletide treat, combining stop motion puppets with 2D cel animation, drenched in the directors’ signature humour and charm.

Niceshit says,

“We have so much in common with Lobulo in terms of creativity, humor, friendship, and narrative so diving into a hand-crafted film and writing it together was a complete joy ride…We made this with so much love and with so many lovely people involved: infinite thanks to the incredible team of artists that joined us on this one, you are the best.  

Love, Niceshit & Lobulo, 2023”
