A Fantastic Fear Of Everything, Animation

A career highlight for me was working as one of two animators on the feature film A Fantastic Fear Of Everything, directed by Chris Hopewell. I was responsible for a character called Brian, a war paint wearing foul mouthed hedgehog with homicidal tendencies! Working with an incredible crew and narrated by none other than Simon Pegg it was a real buzz. The sets were beautifully creepy, made from real trees and required watering every day... Some of the shots like the opening sequence required me to animate at full stretch on my stomach to reach the puppet, if you've never animated you would be surprised how physical it can be. Anyway, here's the sequence which forms the finale of the live action film, enjoy.
