Christmas Homecomings with Charles Dickens

Here's a simple little low budget film I directed for Strategem iLabs for its clients, Expressway and Bus Éireann to celebrate all those Christmas homecomings they're part of. Richard Kendrick shot the pix, with additional footage from Hugh Chaloner and Conor Smyth cut it.
