Knotty Logs is an an­i­mated short cre­ated as part of Daniel Sav­age’s Yule Log 2.0; a cu­rated group of mini-films that bring the yule log tra­di­tion into the dig­i­tal age. The re­sult of “12 peo­ple hun­kered down, brain­storm­ing, in a 10x10ft con­fer­ence room for a cou­ple of hours,” the an­i­ma­tion tells the story of “two inan­i­mate ob­jects get­tin’ it on – while stay­ing taste­ful”, says de­signer Sarah Beth Hul­ver. It’s a fine line to tread, of course. “But add a lit­tle dose of cute into any­thing and it some­how be­comes more ac­cept­able.”

Oddfel­lows has con­trib­uted to Yule Log 2.0 for four years in a row now, she adds. “We al­ways use it as an op­por­tu­nity to try some­thing dif­fer­ent from our com­mer­cial work. In past years, our logs have been very de­sign­driven, or po­etic. This year, we went with some­thing a lit­tle more sen­sual.”
