This is a commercial ad of ITV. This commercial was released in December 2018 in United Kingdom. Under the title of “ITV: Dancing on Ice 2019 – Bear and Squirrel”.
When we saw last years Dancing On Ice trailer our immediate thoughts were “wow, really cool and definitely something we at FABLEfx would love to have been a part of!” So saying we were heads over heels when we were approached this year would be a huge understatement.
After seeing the witty animatic we both saw it’s huge potential but also how much more advanced and challenging this would be. With some additional water and ice vfx help by our friends at ILP, we must say we think this turned out pretty awesome.
It was done by ITV Creative, London advertising agency. And, the commercial by Production Company is Hush London and is directed by Kirk Hendry.
The commercial song is Original Music by composer Stuart Hancock. This song was produced specifically for the commercial and unfortunately, it is not available to purchase or download on any music sites.
Thus, I am not able to get any information about this song. However, if you have any information about this song by any chance, please leave your comment.
