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.
