We were thrilled to be approached by Mfour/Manchester City Council to once again produce the Manchester Christmas advert. With the success of last year’s campaign, we were challenged with creating another poignant advert to celebrate the spirit of Christmas in Manchester. We were required to produce the animation and creative treatment, adopting the young boy and girl characters from the previous year. We added a few more characters in the matching style to further promote the importance of family, friendship and togetherness during the festive period, and what better setting than the symbolic Manchester Christmas markets? Not forgetting the cameo appearance of last year’s iconic Santa and Rudolph characters. The music was also specially commissioned by Blackley Brass Band.
Do you think it gives John Lewis a run for its money?
