Shot in early 2008, HTGT was a sitcom pilot based on a struggling unsigned band rattling around the uninspiring halls of their local rehearsal studio.
The cast was a mixture of stand-ups and actors to create a fluid, improvised feel to the performance. Shot over two intensive days, this pilot was put into development by Baby Cow North in 2008.
After re-working the concept slightly, and a re-cast, we shot a couple of short "taster pilots" in Salford in 2009.
After finding a half-completed script for a kid's TV sitcom, I made the bold decision to try and animate the opening scene. Grappling with brand new technology, and having to draw six individual animated characters, it was my boldest project yet.
