This year I’ve had the chance to produce one of the animated sections of the new John Lewis Christmas ad by Oscar Hudson.

Our section lead by @smokinghippo brought to you some very friendly pigeons giving a little spikey some love, helping him to fly.

I’m beyond thankful by the amazing work of the whole crew and of course Neil Andrews from Pulse Films.
