New York, December 30, 2013 –

Wildly successful digital filmmaker Freddie Wong, best known for his CGI-fueled, over-the-top web series and shorts, has tapped into the visual resources of stock image provider

Shutterstock

to create his latest viral hit,

Secret Santa

.   The award-winning director creatively wove nearly 100 Shutterstock images and video clips into Secret Santa, which mashes up storylines from popular Christmas-themed and secret agent blockbusters. The 22-minute movie premiered on Wong’s

RocketJump YouTube channel

on Christmas day, and is the second installment in a new interactive comedy series called

Movie Night

.   “Movie Night is about conveying the humor of over-the-top blockbuster movie premises mashed up with a cartoony image aesthetic - literally everything is built from stock images,” says Wong. “We required lots of images to make everything from backgrounds, environments, and props. Shutterstock was invaluable in providing stock footage and imagery of literally anything we could think of."   “We’re thrilled to see Freddie Wong use Shutterstock to fuel his never-ending imagination,” says Shutterstock Director of Footage, Adam Sosinsky. “Freddie’s unique visual approach is a perfect example of how creative visionaries are able to use our collection of stock imagery to tell their stories.”  

Movie Night

is a new interactive comedy web series where a different ridiculous movie concept is condensed into a rapid-fire blockbuster each month. Fans vote for which genre of film is released at the beginning of the month.   Wong capped off 2013 by being named

Creator of the Year by VideoInk

and taking out Variety's Top Webseries of 2013 for the runaway hit, Video Game High School.
