Dunnes Stores- Shine Bright

Play Commercial

Dunnes Stores turned to Antidote’s director Henry Mason to bring us this festive spot.

This magical Christmas offering for Dunnes was shot in Dublin, Wicklow, Kildare and Kilkenny – with Screen Scene’s vfx supervisor Allen Sillery in shoot attendance.

Having all been shot in sunny September, Screen Scene were tasked with turning the landscapes and villages into a winter wonderland. Multiple matte paintings tracked and composited over live drone footage was the order of the day. 3D jets, multiple green-screen plates and night-cloud volumetric systems were also on-hand to enhance Henry’s vision. Also employed were similar snow particle systems that we had used on Game of Thrones, to bring us into the crisp chilly magical world of a heart-warming Dunnes Stores Christmas.
