A little background information...

After the last Clockwork Jerk I made, I really wanted to add some colour to the series, so I decided on this script. The idea of two, overweight slobs relentlessly tucking into fondant fancies really tickled me, so I rolled up my sleeves and got to work!

How was the film made?

Plasticine on Glass, A live action set dressed literally on the kitchen table and lit with fancy LED lighting. This footage was superimposed under the animated characters giving them the illusion that they were in the midst of the feast surrounding them. I altered the colouring to give a power blush feel to the film as well as choosing classical music to really make a contrast between them and their surroundings.
