This was my graduation film in 2004. My style has developed quite a bit since then. There are a couple of parodies of the British TV channels, BBC2 and Channel 4. The voice on the Channel 4 parody is a direct reference to an announcer who has a 'Geordie' accent (that's someone from around Newcastle), who narrates Big Brother, amongst other things. I thought I ought to clear that up for all the non UK residents, because it could be a bit baffling.
If you want violence, or lots of sick and twisted stuff, this isn't the film for you. If you feel like watching something thoughtful and being told a story, check it out.
Here's a short synopsis of each bit:
BBC Poo: A parody of the British TV channel BBC TWO’s ident. Introduces the next animation, ‘Poo Party’.

Poo Party: A story inspired by my childhood imagination.

Dangermouse Pyjamas: An animation about nostalgia.

The Nose Hobby: A story about my fascination, as a child, with shoving things up my nose.

Trees: An animation, using treated DV footage, about failing to seize the day.

A Bird I Saw: A short animation, using the ‘rotoscoping’ technique.

Channel 4: A parody of the British TV Channel, Channel 4’s ident. Introduces ‘Jonny 5’.

Jonny 5: Another animation based around nostalgia, which addresses the sensitivity of youth.

Blue Door: An animation which explores the darker side of childhood whimsy.

Straw Friend: An animation about anthropomorphising inanimate objects.

Spamchester: Treated DV footage, using the sound of rain to convey my feelings about Manchester (which is where I went to University).

Weirdly, you are not the first to say that:) I suppose that sort of window is quite common, so I shouldn't really be surprised. Thanks for the feedback.

Congratz on getting on the telly!!

Hey man i just saw this on BBC2! I was channel flicking and i saw it just as it started the thing about putting stuff up the nose, and then it played the straw one. I HAD NO IDEA it was on tv or anything lol.

A great chuckle.


Hexjibber responds:

Thanks. Yeah it has been on tv a couple of times now. I am glad you caught it. In a way I am surprised how many people catch it, when it is on so late.

Really unfunny

I guess the whole point of this series of sketches was comedy rather than anything, but you fail miserably. There is nothing funny here at all. In retrospect the "BBC Poo" introduction is the highlight.

The drawing is fine, the style you've animated is nice, and the idea of a bunch of short sketches about "your" childhood -- these are all fine. Unfortunately you don't fulfil the potential because the stories are terrible and have no punchlines.

Next time you should get somebody else to write the jokes, and you just draw over them.

P.S. You spelt "tweasers" wrong.
