Preferably Blue

A deviously funny dark comedy of the animated variety.

agency: NZFC

director: Alan Dickson

Written by: Wayne Ching

Not everyone loves Christmas

Based on real events, Preferably Blue is the story of a very lonely, and very bitter Easter Bunny.  Fuelled by ego, jealousy, vodka and anti-depressants,  the Easter Bunny hatches a plan that will see the “holiday spotlight” shift from his old foe Santa firmly back onto himself. But while he progresses his vodka fuelled plan, he learns something about himself that will change Christmas forever. Selected for competition at many high profile film festivals Preferably Blue is a much loved classic short featuring British comedy legend Harry Enfield.

And our favourite review 

It is not every day one gets to see a cartoon Easter Bunny vomit or Santa body slam and stomp a drunk animal and because of that alone, it is worth its weight in cinematic gold.
