BAFTA winning animation studio, Blue Zoo, has collaborated with YellowDog, an award winning cloud and crowd-sourced render services company and the GPU-accelerated render engine, Redshift to produce a short animation called ‘No More Stuff’.

The trio of animation and tech royalty have combined their seasoned skills to create an exceptional parody action movie trailer that is sure to be popular not only animators and 3D artists alike, but mere mortals too.

Blue Zoo is renowned for releasing special animations each festive season – last year’s short was particularly successful, being named a Vimeo Staff Pick as well as winning a collection of awards.  The 2015 film, entitled ‘More Stuff’, was a clever spin-off looking at ‘the true meaning of Christmas’ whilst delivered in high-quality image rendering. It featured Santa’s mischievous elves mocking the latest must-have items in Santa’s sweatshop, before going on strike with the commercialisation of the whole festive season.

With the bar set high, this year’s Christmas animation does not disappoint.  Blue Zoo bring another belly-laughing couple of minutes to your life supported by high quality of rendering. The spoof film trailer, ‘No More Stuff’, looks at what happens when Santa returns from delivering his presents, to find his elves have run amok. The comical short film is made up of around 20 movie references, making it all the more entertaining to guess as many movie titles as you can.
