Gelato Go Home (Director's Cut)
Directed by the duo known as Alisdair + Jock under the Trunk Animation banner, Gelato Go Home narrates a tale of seasonal migration of an entire fleet of ice cream trucks completely out of their element in a frozen wasteland. Once their wings unfurl, the journey towards warmer climates begins in this rather silly 2D/3D hybrid animated short, which could use some narration by Patrick Stewart or Morgan Freeman to give it that true National Geographic style flair.
As the first snow flake settles on cold concrete, the ice cream vans begin to contemplate the harsh winter ahead. For, like the caribou and the grey goose, the season marks the start of a long voyage in search of sunnier climes.
