Eran Hill animates a family peacefully swinging to the rhythm of fire.

During the holiday season, many families light up the fireplace and decorate the mantlepiece, but for many others it is not an option. Daniel Savage invites filmmakers and artists to make video loops inspired by the Yule log tradition, and they come up with numerous vivid animations of the wild nature, fairy tales, bizarre scenarios and many more. Each year, selected videos are presented on the Yule log website, and anyone can play these burning fire non-stop at home during dinner parties and cold, crisp mornings!

Here are some screentshots of the animations:

"Yule Shall Not Pass!" by Josh Parker, Mercy Lomelin

"Snow Drifts" and Chimbley Nymphs by Oddfellows 

This project first appeared in 2013, simply named Yule Log 2.0, when 65 creatives worked together to produce 55 short animations, including one of marshmallows listening to Grandpa Sausage telling stories by the fire. 

This year, the logs get even more artistic and wacky!
