Beloved festive film The Muppet Christmas Carol was the surprise inspiration behind our data protection film for Royal Mail.
During a chat about the hit movie, the film and animation team agreed they’d love to create a production with puppets. So, when Linney was tasked with creating an innovative and engaging piece for January’s Data Protection Day, they seized their chance to conjure up some Muppet-inspired magic.
The film, with Royal Mail character Lockie singing data-themed lyrics to the tune of “Mr Postman”, was shot against a green screen so the puppeteers could be hidden, with the sets built on a rostrum two feet up so they could operate the characters.
Linney Create’s Daryl Spencer-Lovesey said: “The client was delighted, and it was great to try something new, push boundaries and raise the engagement potential of what is typically quite a dull subject.”
