So, I spent the last 18 months of my life as the post-production manager/compositor and animator on this:



To be clear, I worked with a crazy Polish dude called Maciek (who goes by Magik), who produced the first anthology of this series many years ago - and there were many other ridiculously talented animators involved in this project.

I did show off some bits and pieces of it some time ago, but the goddamn thing is done and it airs Christmas day on HBO. Relieved.

Awesome! Those clips all looked wonderful, and to have an HBO special on your resume is pretty fantastic. Well done.

This is great! We loved your animations with the seal. Looking forward to seeing the rest. Congratulations!

Thanks. I realize HBO's target audience is little kids, but we did try to make it appeal to all ages. There's no dialogue, just animation set to lullabies (each one unique to a specific culture). The White Seal segment is probably my favourite.

Just to clarify, the work I produced for this is scattered across both episodes - so Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day. I had nothing to do with the final editing of this (just some of the many individual segments), so I won't even see how this all came together until the shows air.
