Now that's what we call a wrap!

Behind the scenes of our Christmas campaign shoot

Junction Eleven shot a very special Christmas scene this year in which the studios became a grotto and the Junction Eleven team took over the hardwork whilst Santa put his feet up.

We shot the scene on a rare quiet day in the studios and it was a true team effort which shows in the behind the scenes footage and images.

When Cracker the reindeer arrived (with the sleigh from props company Animal Dramatics) the whole Junction Eleven team were in the lobby to meet her and grab a few posed photo's. She was a true professional and behaved impeccably throughout, and her handlers behaved pretty well too!

Phil, our principal retoucher, stepped into some rather big boots to act as our Santa. He rather enjoyed the role and was really rather convincing.

Our Studio Assistants, Tom and Jordan, were the elves in the scene, and were given a helping hand to reach the presents at the top of the pile by our 6'5" elf Stuart AKA our Head of CGI.

Once the shoot was completed our CGI team got to work creating the mountain of presents in Studio 2 replicating the wrapping paper in the 'real' presents.

When all the components were put together the scene looking pretty impressive. We hope you like it too!

All it takes is for us to wish you a very Merry Christmas, have a great new year and we'll see you in 2015!
