PAL Xmas Card  

Merry Christmas

First off, we would like to wish all our customers and suppliers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year. We have been pretty busy, but still had time to get up to our usual fun and games. Please be patient and allow the e-card time to download as it is animated. The idea for this years Christmas card was inspired by a Heath Robinson drawing which showed a camera release system that involved firing a gun at a target. Ours was put together in similar style with added input from Monty Python and parts that I had laying around the studio and my garage. To create the ability to animate the card, everything, yes everything had to be shot seperately and put together in photoshop. Believe it or not, there were just over a 100 photoshop layers in the image, not including the snow. In fact we might have put them together too well as many of the people that have seen the card thought we had built it in the studio. We could never have done this as the relative scales have been changed, the finger is actually only a couple of cms long! If you have received a physical card please scan the QR code with your iphone as this leads you to an interactive version that you can play stop rewind etc. Once again Happy Christmas and hope to talk to you all in the New Year.
