Initially these were self-created films of a slightly more racy nature but were then loosely ‘commissioned’ by CBBC and thus re-written for a more child friendly audience.
I created the technique to be able to quickly create charming and beautiful films that had the writing and voicing to the fore and it’s flowered with the involvement of Ben and James both with their writing and voicing (with the glorious Toby Longworth) and general top class comedy heads.
The technique is building up to a current pitch for a wider and fuller pitch for CBBC with a huge cast of more contemporary (but no less silly) characters but is still in development…
