Dancing on Ice

Trailer for ITV

ITV UK wanted something extra for their Dancing On Ice trailer: polar bears on ice – and we were of course happy to help them.  The result is a trailer that melted the hearts of UK viewers when it aired in December 2017, a story about an impossible dream that becomes reality. Made entirely in CG, using all the tools in our tool box to make this winter magic skating tale come alive.

In 2018, the trailer received three award nominations: Emile Awards 2018, Roy 2018 and at Fredrikstad Animation Festival.

We don’t make dreams come true.

We make them real. And if you like what you’ve seen us do for others, imagine what we could do for you. Because what we’ve done is only the starting point. We are constantly reinventing our expertise and using it in previously unknown ways, blurring the edges between what’s real and what’s possible. All you have to do is watch, because we’re not just aiming for the rainbow – we want to go beyond. Contact us
