Clay animation featuring the voice of my granddad

I have always been inspired by Creature Comforts and Wallace and Gommit so when I was 13 years-old I attempted a sync sound animation using a clay figure I sculpted and was voiced by my granddad. I recorded him talking about what it was like when he was growing up and set about animating to it using a super 8 camera.

The costumes and miniature props were made by my mother Denise Kerr, I especially love his hand-knitted cardigan that after 3-months of animating was caked with melted plasticine.
