Animating Alan: Mr Stone’s 2012 Christmas Message

Well, it’s Friday (yay!) and that typically means yet another awesome blog post from our self proclaimed Head of Cultural Output and expat ¬†American Alan Stone. However, as we’re getting nearer Christmas we wanted to do something a bit different.

Unfortunately, Alan is a little shy. He wouldn’t even pose for a proper photo for his Facebook, Twitter and right here on the American Soda blog, so when we suggested he record a video of his latest blog he went whit(er than he already is – get out more, Alan!). No amount of bribery involving Skittles, Cheetos or Dr Pepper would get him front of that camera so we came up with another idea. Animation!

We got Alan to read his Christmas message, recorded it, then created a (hopefully) hilarious cartoon featuring Alan himself. Have a watch and let us what you think! If you like it, tell us – we’ll do more if it goes down well!

Thanks to Alan for all his ‘hard’ work this year, we look forward to a lot more in 2013. In the meantime, subscribe to our YouTube channel so you get to see ALL our videos.:)
