Back in the mid to late 90’s I worked on a series of commercials for the Henson Creature Shop in Camden. This is a short behind the scenes video I found in the loft a few days ago. I’d been searching for it for ages and I feared it was lost. This transfer is taken from a second generation VHS, so the quality is a bit ropy.
It’s great to have this as a record of what we did. It was a pretty successful campaign that ran for quite a few years.
I was never that young and hairless though.
I’m very pleased to announce that I am becoming a part of the Wastebuster team!
Wastebuster CIC is a not-for-profit social enterprise that aims to support schools to become sustainable, to empower children to change their environment and enable children to believe that they can make a difference to their world.
The programme is designed to ‘bust’ the idea of ‘waste’ (to demonstrate how waste is a resource) and show how changes in the way we learn, live, play, work, and travel can help us live happy and healthy lives – within the resources available to us.
Part of this enterprise is a series of videos (and possible TV show) starring Captain Busta and Lieutenant Pong.

I’m very proud to be a part of this and look forward to a fruitful partnership.
Further to my post yesterday, I can now announce that I will be working on the new ITV show Newzoids.
The show will be airing on the run up to the General Election and will be taking a swipe at politicians and celebrity culture.
It’s been a while since a show like this has been on the air and we are all very excited about it and can’t wait to get stuck in!
There is an article about it in The Guardian today. Check it out!
