The film was created using a combination of traditional artwork and digital animation.
Live action segments of Kate Bush were treated to integrate with the visual style of the piece.
A total of 18 scenes were created, each consisting of up to 41 individual layers, such as artwork, textures, snow animation, animated Yeti or hunter sequences, live action of Kate Bush, atmospheric mist, light effects etc.
Although the final film is 2' 33" long a total of 3' 34" of animation was needed to allow for the long transitions which give the final film its fluid feel integrating it beautifully with the song.
