The Making of ‘Where Christmas Comes for Christmas’

Meet Elf, Angel, Reindeer and Mouse, the animated stop-motion stars of the new Myer Christmas film ‘Where Christmas Comes for Christmas’. We took a look behind the scenes to discover how the film came together.

Created by Clemenger BBDO in collaboration with Aardman Animation – the Academy Award-winning animation studio of ‘Wallace & Gromit’ and ‘Shaun the Sheep’ fame – the four month production process saw each of the four characters sculpted by hand and filmed frame by frame.

Clemenger BBDO Creative Director Evan Roberts said, “Myer has always been a destination for Christmas. We figured that goes for everyone, including little Christmas icons like reindeers and elves.”

Creative Director Stephen de Wolf from Clemenger BBDO said, “We wanted to bring a little bit of magic back to Christmas this year, but without being typically saccharine about it. The result is something beautiful and whimsical, but with a uniquely Australian tone. We hope you like it.”

  1. Hi Myers loved your Christmas ad this year! No need for the “winter wonderland” vibe however, it odvuously never snows in Australia at Christmas and that’s what makes it different than the rest of the world and I think it’s really important to showcase that! Start a new tradition Myer! Promote an Australian Chrisy! Cheers!
