My dolls in the new Talk Talk TV advert

Earlier this year I had a call from an advertising company working on a new advert for Talk Talk.
The advert was to feature a dollshouse that comes to life and I created the mum and dad of the house .
I have just seen the advert for the first time this evening and its wonderful. So strange to see my little characters come to life !
Hope you enjoy watching it too

Wow! That is incredible! You have to keep looking at it.

Congratulations

I watched 'Tangled' with my children a couple of nights ago and all through that I kept thinking 'these characters are based on Bellabelle dolls'! There is something about the eyes and the life in them.

LOL Robin, it was funny last night, it came on tv and my hubs told me but I was busy and by the time I looked at the tv it had ended. Then it showed on channel 4 which we werent watching and my daughter rang, by the time we switched channel I had missed it again so it was third time lucky for me to see it !

LOL Linda, I wasnt sure they would actually use my dolls as we had such problems getting things right for the animation. it really was a thrill to see them come to life though and I think the ad is beautifully done, love the little eskimo in the snow dome (I didnt make him though, just mum and dad )

Hi lirael,
I watched it a few times too last night, I was just thrilled everytime it came on tv !
It makes you appreciate the work that goes into making animated movies though. I worked for almost 2 weeks making the dolls and extra costumes and body parts etc. for a few seconds of airtime. Definitely worth it !

Wonderful!! I hadn't seen this advert but I would have recognised 'mum' as one of your dolls and it's fabulous to see her move.

Jain Squires said...

julie campbell said...
