About the Film, “Santa Company”
Noel is a girl who has just joined the mysterious Company. Santa Company is an international corporation that consists of three departments: Santa Dept., Reindeer Dept. and Gift department. And only once a year, these three departments work together and use their expertise to safely deliver Christmas gifts on Christmas Eve!
It’s told with a touch of romance and action. It also shows how ordinary people with no particular special powers systematize the job of Santa Clauses to make it fitted in the real world, relationships between workers, and this Christmas gifts delivery business’s power of influence and economic effects.
Animator and director Kenji Itoso (who worked with Hayao Miyazaki and Satoshi Kon) has currently raised more than half of $50,000 to finance “Santa Company” through Kickstarter. Funding will be used to create the film as well as produce English and French subtitles.
