RNIB | See Christmas Differently – Narration Voiceover

In this video I provide the male narrator voice. This is intercut with the audio description, provided by a female voice artist.

The animation forms part of the 2019 Christmas fundraising campaign, titled “See Christmas Differently”.

The campaign was inspired by the real-life story of a 6 year-old-boy named “Ed”, who lost his sight in 2018 after surgery to remove a brain tumour. With the love of his family and having received the right support, he is now a happy and confident boy. Knowing the RNIB will be there to support Ed as he grows up, means everything to his family – they know he’ll be able to fulfil his potential.

All Ed wants for Christmas is one of Rudolph’s bells. For him, the tinkling of bells is the sound of Christmas. Discover if he gets his special wish in this enchanting animation which takes place over Christmas eve and Christmas morning 2019.

If you are thinking about donating to Charity at Christmas or any time of year – please consider the RNIB – the work they do is phenomenal ! See link below.
