Michael Dudok de Wit’s visit to the studio


Today award winning director Michael Dudok de Wit visited the studio. He has just finished his own debut animated feature called The Red Turtle . Some of the Ethel and Ernest crew also worked on Michael’s film, so it was an opportunity  to share experiences and to meet some old friends and colleagues. A good excuse for a pub lunch too.
