“a gloriously wicked and satisfying tale of vengeance and karmic justice”.
From Fessenden: “I love the idea of improv animation, a kind of run and gun immersion where you are discovering the shots and story as you go and animating in the moment. I knew I had a play on words with my Creepy Christmas prompt SLEIGH, so I wanted a tone that oscillated between menace and merriment, which I guess is how I experience reality anyway. I conceived of a mischievous elf who was either building a sleigh or plotting a murder. I bought a snap-together Lego Star Wars figure and molded the elf-flesh on top and then I sewed his groovy elf-threads. All the other cast members were plucked off the shelves in my lair. What an opportunity to see all these iconic characters in a movie together. Much appreciation to all the artisans who designed the fabulous creatures that haunt and inspire me. Thanks to Will Bates for the music. Thanks most of all to Beck for giving me this assignment and for offering to help and for letting me say “no I want to do it on my own.”

Morbidly Beautiful: CRAFTY “Funny, fiendish, and exceedingly creative… destined to become a holiday classic.”
ON THE NINTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS, GLASS EYE PIX GAVE TO ME “CRAFTY”, A WICKEDLY FUNNY AND UNFORGETTABLE SHORT FROM THE CREEPY CHRISTMAS FEST FOUNDER.
Beck Underwood’s funny, fiendish, and exceedingly creative stop motion short “Crafty” feels destined to become a holiday classic. It’s a brilliantly executed short that made me smile from ear to ear, from the hilariously unexpected opening scene to the gloriously mischievous ending you won’t see coming. Just when you think there’s some heartwarming holiday cheer woven into this well-crafted tale of terror, Underwood devilishly reminds us all that this film fest isn’t called Creepy Christmas for nothing!
Beginning December 1st and leading up to Christmas Day, the Creepy Christmas Film Fest will highlight one original horror short a day from talented and up-and-coming filmmakers. In a similar vein to the highly creative horror anthology film ABCs of Death, each filmmaker is given a holiday-themed prompt to inspire their short film.
From Horror News Network: “The 2018 Creepy Christmas Film Festival is now in full-swing with a new film premiering every day until Christmas. Previously created back in 2008, the fest is back with many new and returning filmmakers to give horror fans something to look forward to in the form of an online Advent Calendar. The original 2008 stories were inspired by a diorama that Beck Underwood had built with an imagined view into each window. This time around, the artists were given a grab-bag word to base their story on. Words usually considered sweet, such as candy cane, have now been given a sinister edge in the hands of the filmmakers. We caught up with Underwood to ask her about finding the filmmakers, what inspired the new concepts, and, of course, her feelings about the creepiness of Christmas.
From Morbidly Beautiful: “On the third day of Christmas, Glass Eye Pix gave to me “Cavity”, a macabre metaphor for self destruction via the most unlikely of gateway drugs. The 2018 Creepy Christmas Film Fest from Beck Underwood and NYC-based production company Glass Eye Pix serves up a sinfully sweet treat for day three of the fest, with the deliciously dark and twisted “Cavity” by Glenn McQuaid.”
