A little background information...

This was the episode of Clockwork Jerk that I always wanted to make right from the beginning. A simple idea of two weird little snob creatures going round the garden criticising everything. I just thought that was funny. It ended up ballooning into a whole nature documentary!

How was the film made?

Using plasticine on glass over green screen, then compositing the finished animation onto live action backgrounds filmed around Bristol.

Stop motion + wool. The only that would make me happier is if it had chickens in it. Watch this - it's gorgeous.
