Directed by Elliot Dear
Elliot’s Christmas film for BBC One shows his ability to take a simple story and turn it into something truly magical.
The characters were animated using stop-motion but the facial expressions were created and mapped on the puppets using CGI to bring them to life. The dance routine was choreographed first in live action and then an expert team of Blinkink animators recreated the moves one painstaking frame at a time.
This relatable story of a young girl preparing for the biggest performance of her life will have you wiping your eyes (and tapping your feet).
