Mackevision
Mackevision Season’s Greetings

The idea

Christmas commercials… Everyone knows them, loves them and is eagerly awaiting the highlights of the next season. A fairly young, but already established genre in the strategic brand communication of every “Love Bran” and those who want to become one. The often highly emotional short stories allow brands to show their very human side for once, to collect sympathy and to inspire their customers with unexpected changes of perspective and to put them in a pre-Christmas mood. The annual episodes always address highly relevant hot topics, but Santa and his infernal quartet always provide them with a light-hearted wink and the right dose of action.

Episode #2 "Hellride in a Holy Night"

After the success of the past episode, Santa and his reindeer entourage return in 2021 for a brilliant sequel. Tempered by the happenings of the last episode, Santa has clearly learned his lesson and wants to finally do everything right this year. A perfect plan, but despite the best intentions – in the very literal sense of the word – unfortunately gets completely out of control.

Episode #1 "Once Upon a Chimney"

Share

In 2020, a new star appears in the universe of Christmas animated films: Santa Claus from Mackevision and his gang of reindeer gone wild will cause a sensation during the festive season, somewhat rough-around-the-edges but no less hearty. While most films usually go for the tearjerker, Mackevision goes for a 3D animation with a bit more humor.

No topic has overshadowed the year 2020 more than the COVID-19 pandemic. Even Santa Claus is not spared from this – although somewhat differently than some might have expected.
