Ed Saxby Animation Producer & Director


Christmas on Mars is a short animation created to raise awareness for the elderly who might be spending the festive period alone. The animation features the NASA Curiosity Rover exploring Mars with a feeling of loneliness and isolation. The Rovers features and movement were detailed, emotional and coupled with an atmospheric environment.
The animation proved to be highly popular, being shared globally in the run up to Christmas thanks to an endorsement from the NASA Mars team and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory that engineered and created the Curiosity Rover.
