Special Delivery is made in a collaboration between Aardman Animations and Google Spotlight Stories, and directed by Tim Ruffle. It’s a 360 video designed to be viewed on a smartphone, and tells the story of a humble janitor who gets disturbed by a mysterious stranger on Christmas.
For my part I mostly worked on the background characters, which turned out to be great fun. Below is one of the parts I did – but do check out the full film first. I should note that it is not the final look, but merely a playblast from Maya. I animated the sequence below, the party in the window, and the reindeers doing a light show on the top of the roof.
