The animated sequences were not pre-planned as such, but were considered more as a series of still photos were the action is less overtly dramatic or action-driven, but more subtle and nuanced.
The animations are quite jerky, and this quality is appealing as it references early movies. We are fans of one particular early comedy double act, and any eagle-eyed visitor to our facebook page will have spotted a reference through our 'stage names' of Laurel and Marty. In fact, we have sometimes borrowed titles from Laurel and Hardy movies to use for own episodes.
Also look out for further compilations of our images. Having amassed a considerable back-catalogue, we are in the habit of selecting pictures from various episodes that work together in other contexts. For example, 'Lost Air Time' drew on several episodes and formed a collection about surveillance.
