Three funny and heartfelt scripts for this Christmas ad that focus on the family & food; The place food takes in these films presents truths about the communality of food, the role food takes in so many of our memories, the way it can become part of a family’s traditions, or in the worst cases, folklore! Most importantly, these films are about the way food connects to the idea of home and what our homes mean to us; comfort, safety, understanding and the kind of relationships you can never make out in the real world. These films will be full of magic and humour, not in spite of their authenticity but because of it. Christmas is a magical time, undeniably, but it’s also funny – it’s a time people and families let their guard down, get drunk, do silly things, fall asleep, buy inappropriate gifts… so there’s visible humour inherent situationally.

A little too tall for her age, or a little uncomfortable in her own skin.
