I was joined an animation workshop being run with Deiniol Morris, GOGS animator at Plas Pentwyn, Coedpoeth on Monday 25th October 1.30 – 4.30.

During this course, I have got a the understanding of stop-motion animation development deeply.

Deiniol Morris who is the films producer for the farmers animation Gogs.

Gogs! is a claymation-style animated television series which takes the form of a sitcom, originally aired on Welsh television in 1993, and aired to the rest of the United Kingdom on the BBC in 1996. Gogs has since been aired internationally, and still enjoys re-runs on occasion.

Gogs revo

lves around a family clan of dumb, primitive and socially inept cavemen in a fantasy prehistoric Stone Age setting, and contained various toilet humour-based gags and gross out situations. It also featured their often comedic daily struggle for survival, and attempts to advance their technology and society, and often failing miserably.

The show was

more oriented towards an adult audience than other claymation television series such as The Trap Door or Wallace and Gromit, which were more child-friendly than Gogs. Although often called a children’s television program, Gogs tended to be shown after the watershed, and so was often referred to as “claymation for the post-pub generation”. Later VHS and DVD releases carried a parental guidance rating.

The original series contained only five episodes each of around five to six minutes lo

ng. After winning numerous awards a second series was commissioned with episodes running at a similar length, bringing the total number of episodes of the two series to thirteen in number. In 19

98 the last installment of Gogs, a 30-minute-long special, Gogwana, was aired, which was also critically well received and won numerous awards.

I think this workshop is interesting and it gives some experience for doing the stop – motion.

It’s fun!Hopefully  I can do another stop – motion film in the future.
