Director: Elroy Simmons
A second simultaneously auspicious/anonymous TV directorial outing for me. I Storyboarded Designed, Animated and Directed this 30 second animated sequence tucked away in an episode of “Hustle” (screened BBC 1, 2007). The programme makers and episode's Director asked for a “Kill Bill”-esque 'flashback' to illustratate the very present danger of fatal food poisoning the show's stars had found themselves in – eating 'Puffer Fish' in this case. The small of crew of about eight who worked on this were on the whole invaluable. Particular thanks, however goes to Zoe – who Animation Assisted and coloured/composited, Bill Elliott – who did a startlingly good lead compositing job. Stefan – the actual episode's Director, and Ash – who was Project co-ordinator.
