I'm Having Krampus...

Krampus puppet, feeling shy...
Nose-picker? NAUGHTY!!
Santa's hands

One of my ongoing stopmo projects is a short short featuring Krampus the Anti-Claus. Krampus is Santa's twisted companion, responsible for the naughty children of the world.  Coal is his calling card, and he is often depicted with bundles of birch branches for swatting bad boys and girls before dragging them to Hell.
My short will be presented as an old-school PSA speaking out against Christmas.  Due to the depression and elf layoffs, less toy production means more Krampus as Santa is forced to re-evaluate his definition of "naughty."  My tagline is "Ban Christmas for Krampus".
The short will be around one minute, b&w, and will only feature a handful of shots.  A homeless elf in an alley (done).  A truly naughty girl about to stab someone (done).  Classic shot of Santa checking his list (closeup, only his arms produced, not a full puppet). A nose-picker labelled as naughty who will then be our example of what happens when Krampus calls on Christmas morn...
