“Stand over there for 25 minutes with a cardboard box over your head”
1 hour documentary on the wonderful animated work by Postgate for the BBC. Watch to the end then wish it lasted for an hour and a half. I did.
“Yes it’s nice to have visitors – sometimes it’s even nicer when they leave”
I was particularly taken by his claymation work – “Hollowhead” and “Hell” are stunning – and anyone with the patience for claymation has to be admired.
The real gem of the site isn’t animation at all – it’s the short pieces to camera by Dave’s mate Devvo, musing on various aspects of his drug and lager fuelled, leisure wear clad life somewhere between Doncaster and Hull. Totally authentic and either side splittingly funny or repellent. You decide.
SPOOKY– “Sondheim’s Cat/Laminanimal”
LOVELY– “Le Papillon”
FINALLY– “Super Monks/Supermoines”. Supermoines is hi-res Quicktime and well worth the long download. While you’re wating there’s time to get a snack. Or go to the shops, come back and prepare, cook and eat a nice meal, depending on your connection. The studio’s homepage recently moved from whiterabbit.com to blackbunnystudio and is worth a visit.
