Two Late Elves

A holiday ode to procrastination.

We’ve always had a problem being on time for things. Our friends call this being on “Joy and Noelle time.” So, a year ago, when The Creepy Christmas Fest invited us to make a film for their 2018 festival, it was our Christmas destiny to be up until all hours the night before, racing to finish. They gave us our prompt word, ELF, and a Dec. 23rd deadline.

“Two Late Elves” is an unsettling film inspired by the prompt ELF as well as our own experience with procrastination in making this short. We are two late elves in danger of missing our deadline, animating two late elves in danger of missing their deadline, and nothing is more frightening than that. We hope others can relate to the very real fear of procrastinating too long and not having the time to get everything done before the holidays.
