The Snowman and the Snowdog

Earlier this year I got to spend six months working with a lovely animation crew on the 24 minute TV film 'The Snowman and the Snowdog'. As UK readers will recognise, this is the sequel to the original film 'The Snowman', based upon the picture book by Raymond Briggs. 'The Snowman' was first transmitted 30 years ago, and has been on TV every Christmas since - indeed it has become something of a cultural fixture to generation after generation.

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the film (and Channel 4, which commissioned it) our sequel was put into production. It will be screening in the UK on Christmas Eve.

I'm not allowed to say any more until the film is released, but I will say that it was a lot of fun to work on, and it was great to be making a small contribution to something that will hopefully still be being watched by my children's children on Christmases yet to come..!


  1. Just wondering, is The Last Belle going to get a DVD and if so, when will it be released?

  2. Well, there are no definite plans regarding what will happen to The Last Belle until it has fully finished its festival run (about another year), but it would great to get a DVD out there... We'll keep you posted via these blog pages, hopefully with good news! Thanks for writing truteal.
