The Manners McDade composer worked with ITV Creative, HU_SH and Kirk Hendry to soundtrack the action
Stuart Hancock worked with Director Kirk Hendry, ITV Creative’s Tony Pipes and Animation production company HU_SH. Stuart’s arrangement of Mitch Leigh’s The Impossible Dream beautifully scores the familiar favourite to the action; an adorable polar bear cub struggles to ice skate with her unlikely squirrel partner. This beautiful rendition was recorded with a full orchestra in Bratislava. The session was attended by the ITV marketing and promo teams.
