Cutting between scenes of different families celebrating in their own way, this spot showcases the diversity of traditions that exist at Christmas. Sprouts or no sprouts, staying in or going out, being with family or with friends, it’s Christmas all the same. We are shown scenes of multigenerational family feasts, wine and cheese nights in, women having just given birth, mother-daughter bonding time over the oven and more. These different faces of Christmas all go back to the theme of being happy and doing what we love during the holidays.
The Mill VFX team seamlessly stitched together a number of shots in order to create the perfect look for scenes such as those in the hospital. Steam, smoke and breath effects were also added in to enhance the overall wintery atmosphere and the warmth in the kitchens.
Colourist Seamus O’Kane explains: ‘This was a delightful project that allowed us to develop a vivacious palette to complement both the sentiments of Christmas and the snapshot insights into a panoply of lifestyles.’
