Directed by Stevie Russell, ‘The Christmas Waltz’ is An Post’s first television commercial since the beloved Snowman campaign lit up TV screens and entered our collective hearts back in the 80’s.

Shot on location around Dublin and Wicklow, the spot was Produced by Anne-Marie Curran and Russ Russell for Russell Curran productions.

Created by Robert Boyle, Monika Crowley, and Sinead Kennedy over at Target McConnells under Agency producer Michael Cullen, the ad was Edited by Jake Walshe here at Screen Scene, where Gavin Casey  provided the FX and Compositing, Mick Ellis handled the Sound and Sinead Bagnall was the post producer.

The beautiful accompanying music track by the lovely Lisa Hannigan, entitled ‘The Christmas Waltz’, is available to purchase online right now for as little as one euro, with all profits raised from sales going directly to Simon Community to help tackle homelessness in Ireland, so be sure to treat yourself and help out a good cause if you have a ducat or two to spare!
