A little history…

Yule Log 2.0 was started in 2013 by Daniel Savage. 66 artists from all different disciplines were invited to reimagine the WPIX-11 Yule Log. 53 unique films were made. Partnering with digital agency Wondersauce, they created a web experience allowing users to play all logs on endless loop. 

Within one month of launching, over 1 million logs were burned. In 2014, they invited animation studio Oddfellows to act as a guest curator, 82 films were submitted. In the past three years, just under 200 films have been created for the project.
