For his brand new comedy-meets-music-video series on Sky Atlantic HD "Adam Buxton's BUG", Adam talks about the art of making videos and shows a few of his favourites along with the You Tube commentary that we have all grown to love at his live BUG shows at the BFI on London's Southbank.
Adam chose to collaborate with a handful of his favourite directors to create a series of special videos for the series. Animation super-siblings the Layzell Bros transformed him into a 2-dimensional vagrant for their psychedelic interpretation of Tiny Tim's impossibly cheerful 1968 version of 'Livin' in the Sunlight, Lovin' in the Moonlight', a song originally featured in a 1930 Maurice Chevalier film 'The Big Pond'.
The Layzells teamed with illustrator Jim Stoten to take us on a surreal romp through a richly textured cartoon world dreamed up by a hallucinating out-of-work animator (played by Mr Buxton himself).
This is the director's cut of the The Real Bears, a film I directed and animated for a campaign to reduce the consumption of soda and other sugary drinks.
The music and sound design were done by Nikolai von Sallwitz.
