AUCKLAND, Tuesday: Sweetshop’s Mark Albiston has directed “a poignant, family-centric” Christmas film for BNZ from Colenso.

Albiston said: “This spot is a nice reminder that Christmas isn’t about giving monetary gifts, it’s the thought that counts and we should all be thinking about our family and friends. It’s been a tough year.”

Sweetshop exec producer Kate Roydhouse said: “Simplicity was key throughout and Mark has made a wonderfully cinematic, emotive film that will no doubt resonate with all Kiwis.”
