This year’s Pictoplasma theme, doomsday, inspired the trailer for the world’s largest festival of contemporary character culture to tell a story around a Macy’s Day parade full of twisted characters. Far from the gloom and doom which usually goes along end-of-day stories, Mate Steinforth’s pink creatures invade a vacant city and make it their own.
