I was commissioned to make an animated video for Driving Home For Christmas by UK music channel: Heart TV (Sky 387 / Freesat 506).
It was created to accompany the classic Christmas song by rock legend Chris Rea and tells the story of a polar bear on his journey home to the North Pole on Christmas Eve to be with his family and friends. I wrote and directed the video and made it in my free time over the course of 6 weeks.
The video premiered on Heart TV in November 2014 and was regularly broadcast every Christmas until the channel closed down in 2018.
