Yule Log 2016

Yule Log 2.0

The film above, created by Art & Graft, was one of dozens created for Yule Log 2.0, a collection of short films by various animation artists that are bringing the Yule Log tradition into the digital age.



Yule Log received nearly 1,000 applications to participate. Yule Log’s jury, consisting of Michelle Higa Fox, Justin Cone, and Jorge R. Canedo, whittled that application pool down to roughly 50 participants.

This year, Yule Log is raising funds to support C/I in the Bronx, NY, helping underserved kids learn about technology and coding. Yule Log has raised nearly $4,500 pre-launch. Further donations can be made via CrowdRise.
