Click into Christmas

Our e-card was conceived, written, illustrated, photographed, animated and sound-tracked by our very own Lowri Howells. Nice one Lowri.

How she did it

The movie uses stop-motion animation, in which Lowri drew a few strokes on the blackboard and photographed it, then a few more, building it up until the message was complete. For the second half she repeated the process in reverse, rubbing away the chalk to reveal the message. Dozens and dozens of photos were produced then edited and streamed together in a video package. The falling snow was produced in Flash and imported into to the video package, with the soundtrack added at the end and timing of the sequence set to fit the music. We hope you enjoyed it.

Warmest wishes to all of our friends, clients, colleagues and suppliers for a very merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and successful new year.

We’ll be closed on the Christmas Eve and reopen for business on 2nd January 2013. See you then!
