Now that the John Lewis Christmas ad is out, I can share this! Before I got the job, it was a little uncertain whether they were going to use me or not, and I have NEVER animated anything to this level of realism, so I definitely felt out of my element. So I took Aaron Blaise's awesome Bear and Hare designs and did my own test in hopes to "cram" for the final. From what I heard, they showed it to Aaron, and it sounded like they were looking for something a little more subtle. So oddly enough, he saw my "God forgot about me" piece and that is what sold him. Either way, I got the job and the rest is history! It was an awesome experience working with Aaron, Dominic, and Premise Entertainment, and I am incredibly happy about how the final product turned out and the reaction to it.
