Short animated film for MTV for their 'Sharts' series

Production Details



Nexus Productions

Production Company






A series of short films for MTV under their banner 'MTV Sharts'.

'Sharts' was the unfortunate name to symbolise the cool fusion of Short Art Films but unfortunately semantically brings to mind something a bit more scatalogical in my opinion.

Still... it was the first time that two new techniques of mine were properly shuffled together into a broadcast form, namely the Phonotrope and the puppet technique that eventually became the heart of Finger Theatre.


This film was the first time I had used my recently discovered Phonotrope process in any broadcast way.

For all three films I had wonderful help from Tom Raybould, who did the music for 'Turntable', and James Rawlings, who wrote and voiced the 'D12' one and voiced the 'Drummer' one.
