All I Want for Christmas... Is AfterEffects

For this holiday season, I will be posting all of my favorite Christmas movies that utilize motion graphics and animation.  My favorite Christmas movie of all time is The Santa Clause.  This movie is about a divorced toy marketer who tries to convince his son there is a Santa, even though he does not believe.  One Christmas Eve, their lives changed.  Santa falls off their roof and Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) becomes the new Santa Claus due to the "santa clause".  Scott puts on the Santa suit and now has to take on the full responsibilities of Santa.  It is a great story teaching kids that "seeing isn't believing  believing is seeing".  

Besides the heart warming story comes some awesome 1994 special effects.  Scott Calvin goes through dramatic physical changes, reindeers fly, the north pole holds magical powers, and Scott Calvin fits in some pretty small chimneys.  Although to the trained eye you may see some cables that Tim Allen is hanging from, it never takes away from the magic of this movie.  Enjoy!
