LOUIS ARMSTRONG - A Visit From St. Nicholas (‘Twas The Night Before Christmas)

Project information

Our animated video for Louis Armstrong narrating ‘A Visit from St. Nicholas’, is a suitably atmospheric visual that evokes nostalgic Christmas vibes. Taking inspiration from 50s and
60s style animation, we created a piece that is warmly familiar, with the feeling that it could be contemporary with the original narration.

Verve Label Group commissioned this ambitious piece as the hero video to promote Louis Armstrong’s first ever official Christmas LP “Louis Wishes You A Cool Yule.”

“A Visit from St. Nicholas” proved to be a huge hit, garnering over 4.5M views across Facebook and YouTube and over 1M post engagements. It also helped the project make extensive press coverage, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Daily News, Associated Press, The Times of London, and NPR. All this led to Louis Armstrong’s highest charting album since “Hello Dolly” was released in 1964.
