Animatic for an adult Sketch Show pilot I made for Aardman. Currently in further development.
Regular characters include:
THE CURMUDGEON: The Curmudgeon is the grumpiest, most cantankerous man alive. Each week, he finds a new way to push his curmudgeonly boat out…usually to the detriment of his long suffering son, Steven. Catchphrase… "NO!! I DON"T THINK SO STEVEN!!!"
THE VINEGARY GUSSET: Set in an Enchanted meadow, we are given a glimpse into the marital life of fairies Richard and Geraldine.
SENTINELS OF THE FOREST: We follow the exploits of Wolf Lundgren, a hard-assed Wolf and Inter-galactic law-enforcement officer. His mission?…. to make a crack military unit out of the indigenous woodland creatures of Nutting-Puddle Forest, Somerset, UK.
VIKINGS: A modern-day office block run by Vikings. Episodes take place in familiar office locations…at the Water-cooler, in a conference-call, on a smoking break etc ...but all end in extreme violence and bloodshed.
PUSTULENT TALES: Each week, KIng Oother van Dross reads a terrifying nursery rhyme to his young grandson Gideon…and each week, Gideon completely f**king ruins the ending!
