I just finished up this little video for Home 2 Suites. It's for their holiday eblast they send to people. I was inspired by classic stop motion style. Had a lot of fun with it. Comments welcome.

Very cute. The snowman's jumping animation was a bit floaty for my test but it's beautifully rendered.

Thanks guys. I wasn't real happy with the jumping animation. If I could go back I would make it less stiff and more cartoony.

I like the style a lot. Dof is superb! Snow is awesome.

Can we get some tips on how you made the snow?

Thanks. Dof is all in camera. Snow is all about the lighting. The surface is pretty basic. Just a few turbulance procedurals in the diffuse and spec. I use a gradient based on incidence angle that tints the snow a little blue. I also have 20% luminosity, it helps brighten it up especially in the shadows. I use background radiosity with a blue to warm gradient in the backdrop options. The radiosity helps soften it up and give it the snow look. I attached render with and without radiosity turned on.
