'Mad Dogs & Englishmen' by Gadzooks
Gadzooks Animation have created a quirky and absurd light-hearted short stop motion animated film inspired by kitsch paintings of dogs playing pool as seen in pubs around the country. It features unscripted conversations of people from around the UK on the subject of being British in the post Brexit era. The British – a nation of dog lovers – discuss the quintessentials of British Culture, also manifested in their accents and as regional breeds of dogs.
GADZOOKS ANIMATION are made up of Manchester based film makers STEVE BOOT, HAYDN SECKER and PAUL ‘GRIPPER’ FLANNERY. They have twenty years of professional experience animating on popular children's productions such as Postman Pat, Roary the Racing Car, Raa Raa the Noisy Lion, Twirlywoos, Clangers, Little Robots, Andy Pandy, Rotten Ralph, Albie and many more as well as films such as Tim Burton's Mars Attacks and Frankenwenie,
