BBC One has launched it’s Christmas 2017 short film ‘The Supporting Act’ that will run throughout the Christmas period on the channel.
‘The Supporting Act’ builds on the idea of ‘oneness’ that the channel has been focusing on throughout 2017. The 2 minute film follows a 10-year-old girl who practices day in and day out to give the most important dance performance of her life. Her dad is always with her but he’s busy, and getting even busier as Christmas approaches. He remains distracted up until the moment that really matters, when father and daughter come together in a wonderful moment of ‘oneness’.
The soundtrack for the campaign has been provided by Clean Bandit featuring Zara Larsson with 'Symphony', and it was specially re-arranged by the award-winning producer Steve Mac. Mac explains “It was a real pleasure to work with the BBC on this piece. From the moment I saw the film I wanted to get involved, and it was very exciting to help make the music work around the visuals and story line.”
