Holy Night! was an action-adventure Christmas comedy that I directed in Spain during 2006-2008. This animated feature pioneered the use of simple models with complex rigs and non-photorealistic rendering, a novel approach at the time in mainstream computer animation.

Rough cut by Renato Roldan.

The story takes place in a traditional Nativity scene and the plot starts the night before Christmas when the baby Jesus is nowhere to be found, pure Spanish-style comedy. Our movie trailers were screened to great critical acclaim at FMX, xMedia Lab, Cartoon Forum, and Mundos Digitales throughout 2008. The local production company went out of business and unfortunately the movie was not completed.
