In collaboration with FCB Canada, Cole Webley via Toronto production house Soft Citizen (he is handled in the U.S. by Sanctuary) directed this charming three-minute holiday story about a group of young friends who discover a lost reindeer in the woods and set to work on getting the animal home to the North Pole for Christmas.

Titled “Lost Reindeer,” this ambitious ad for Air Canada conveys the unique emotional pull of being home with loved ones during the holidays. VFX/animation house was Cape Town, South Africa-based BlackGinger.
