STORY PREMISE

One of Santas Elves who isnt in the festive spirit of


Christmas must swallow his pride to save Santa from
the cold recesses of Space.

STORY LOGLINE

An unpopular Elf in Santas present efficiency is left in


charge of a lonely present filling outpost in the middle of
Space, due to his lack of Christmas cheer. When Santa
arrives to fill up his presents, he gets locked outside due
to an administrative blunder/inference in an attempt to
get the Elf to embrace Christmas.

STORY STEP OUTLINE


One of Santas elves is complaining about his appoint to the most remote position
in Santas work force to an annoying colleague in administration on the Elf
telecomm as itd be unlikely anyone would visit, when Santa himself drops in for a
present refill in the snow-globe themed visiting dome. The Elf tries to follow
regulation and perform health and safety checks in the room but finds that his key
card has been disabled by the elf in administration as a jolly prank, as annoyingly
there is another way to open the door, by singing Jingle bells happily at the door
which then opens on voice command. The elf is not amused by this and demands
that the doors be unlocked for this important occasion. At the same time, Santa (not
paying attention) accidently opens the bay doors by whistling jingle bells and is let
out into Space, with only his Christmas space suit keeping him breathing. The Elf
finally caves to pressure and chants the song, reaching Santas sleigh ship and
going out to save Santa. In doing so, proving that basing important fundamental
health and safety measures around Christmassy gimmicks, though fun, can risk
lives and the Elf is taken seriously by Santa, influencing positive change.
