We’ve begun production on the last of the five Peaty’s Playhouse video shorts, saving the best for last. “Holy Roosters!” is our second foray into the medium of “claymation.” The video is about the disturbing effect the Roosters have on poor Mister Tim and the delight Mister Tim’s plight brings to Peaty. The Roosters are a dysfunctional family of rooster potatoes; Da, Ma, Lad and little Veronica. The short delves into a day at church for the family. Here’s the concept drawings of the “Da” character.
This short animated commercial took a lot longer to produce than anticipated. It started in September 2014 and just finished mid-January 2015. Besides having a substantial amount of animation files go corrupt, (one would think we’d learned the ‘back-up’ lesson by now), the animation/compositing itself took quite awhile to finish. A big thanks goes out to Gary Etchingham for the great work he did for Blackie the Lung’s voice. We hope you get a chuckle or two out of it!
