Aardman Nathan Love “Winter Refresh” for Nickelodeon

Director Joe Burrascano and the Aardman Nathan Love crew in NYC reference stop motion holiday classics like Bass/Rankin’s “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” for this ambitious set of seasonal Nickelodeon IDs.

ANL co-founder/director Joe Burrascano: “Translating Nick’s top brands into tactile, CG versions was the first challenge, and it shaped the look of our winter world.

“The Nick team gave us an opportunity to add original characters to the mix, and our development process led us through elves to a crew of rascally snowballs.

“And the breadth of this opportunity was massive: to develop their entire winter ID package, consisting of 20 original IDs, featuring characters from their most important shows.”
