Disney animator Hyrum Osmond and actor Josh Gad have created a new series of Frozen shorts available on YouTube, produced entirely from their own homes.
At Home with Olaf uses existing character models and backgrounds to produce the 50-second shorts.
Starting this week, enjoy an all-new original Disney Animation digital series with everyone’s favorite snowman, Olaf. #AtHomeWithOlaf created at home by Hyrum Osmond. Voiced from home by Josh Gad. #DisneyMagicMoments pic.twitter.com/gFFuHE8mev

Gad said on Twitter: “It was a little bit of a challenge because I’m not good technically, and now we’re releasing Olaf shorts!”
Gad has also been using Twitter and Instagram’s live tools to read children’s books from isolation.
