We are thrilled to share that DNEG Animation will be working once again with Locksmith Animation on the production of their next movie – That Christmas!
This is the second collaboration between Locksmith Animation and DNEG Animation, and follows our successful partnership on Locksmith’s debut film Ron’s Gone Wrong, which garnered multiple Annie Award nominations and was voted ‘Best Feature’ at the 2022 British Animation Awards.
That Christmas is based on the successful children’s book series by filmmaker Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually, Yesterday) and marks the feature film directorial debut of renowned character animation and story artist veteran Simon Otto (How to Train Your Dragon trilogy).
Locksmith’s CEO Natalie Fischer shared,
“We are happy to continue our collaboration with Oscar®-winning DNEG. DNEG Animation’s contribution to Ron’s Gone Wrong was integral to the film’s appeal to audiences and we look forward to this new chapter.”
