An enchanting paper version of Bristol has been created for a film promoting the city as a place to visit over Christmas and New Year.
Visit Bristol has produced the film featuring an illuminated paper-cut sculpture of some of the city’s famous landmarks.
The 'Merry Bristmas' film promotes the city as an attractive Christmas destination. It is two-and-a-half minutes long and was made in collaboration with Bristol-based Peloton Design, photographer and film-maker Michael Foyle and artist and ‘paper illustrator’, Sam Pierpoint.
The artist was invited to ‘imagine a city made for Christmas’. In the film, she is seen photographing and sketching key elements of Bristol’s landscape – including the Clifton Suspension Bridge, the ss Great Britain and At-Bristol's Planetarium.
She has created a paper-cut island sculpture of Bristol – finished off with a miniature Christmas tree, fairy lights and tiny hot air balloons.
Here are some of the intricate steps involved:
