So here's where I'm at today. Just a little teaser image - which doesn't make much sense as is - I got to the point in the animation where the surly Elf dumps a bag of children's letters to Santa on the table. So far, it's going pretty well, but the next step is to animate a huge amount of letters pouring out of the sack. I'm hoping the simple action of the elf works with what comes next. The elf stops in place and the letters flowing out of the bag will direct your attention to Santa, who then reacts to the action. The shot is really just a chain of actions that direct your attention and progress the story. I'll show more in full when more is complete.
