Santa ducks in and vanishes though his magical chimney portal without realising Timmy has slyly climbed into his sack. Jane, racing after her stow away brother dives into the portal after them. The journey begins.

Neon Noel 2017 is loosely based on the 'Night before Christmas' poem with added jeopardy. The plot features curious Tim (8), Jane (tim's sister, 10) and Santa. Following the magical portal scene, we (the students) are to visualise and develop a series of imaginative and uniquely designed worlds. These worlds are revealed through visually dynamic transitions triggered by Jane's departure from one to the next.
