Youtube VideoYukfoo Animation’s first short film Preferably Blue, which tells the story of an embittered, reprobate Easter Bunny, made its rather appropriate New York premiere at the 10th Tribeca Film Festival on Easter Sunday. And it's also off to Germany after being chosen to screen at the Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film in May.
Based on real(ish) events, the animated film directed by Alan Dickson, written by Wayne Ching and produced by Glen Real, delves into the murky world of ego, jealousy, vodka and anti-depressants, with the Bunny (voiced by English comedy legend Harry Enfield) hatching a plan that will see the “holiday spotlight” shift from Santa—who isn’t such a Jolly Ol’ Fat guy after all—back onto himself.
The film was produced with the assistance of the New Zealand Film Commission and executive produced by Nomadz Unlimited and it had its World Premiere at the 2011 SxSW festival earlier this year.
At the end of last year, Spotify crunched the numbers and surfed its playlists to give thanks to its users for a 'weird' 2016. Now, Spotify's brought its highly successful 'Platform for Discovery' campaign to New Zealand shores to highlight some the most bizarre habits of Kiwi listeners.
