Here's two sneaky snaps from a feature I worked on as production designer/art director. One scene I was channeling 'Scotland's dirtiest toilet' from Trainspotting. Spot the condoms, broken glass, and turd-shaped chocolate biscuits.

'How to lose weight' production shots

Weight loss tip #13: Be an animator. Over the 2 month shoot, I must have lost nearly 2kg during my first outing with clay. Here are some snaps!

Clockwise. a) With a heater under the lens and the hairdryer strapped between the lights, both running for 14 hours straight, the room got to 32 degrees Celsius. I sat right there the whole time making sure the house didn't perish in flames. b) Me and my little friend doing business. c) The inevitable aftermath. Hallelujah!

'Sex with Condoms' film stills

Here are 2 stills from a safe-sex spot entitled 'Sex with Condoms'. Animated in stopmotion, I used just about 100 condoms for the shoot. Thanks to novelty flavoured condoms, for weeks my studio reeked like fruit punch.

'Sex with Condoms' production

I've been acquiring condoms for the last 2 weeks, collecting every shape, colour, size, flavour on the market. I'd be unwrapping packets and checking the colour combinations in sex shops amongst bemused customers. One shop I came back to the next day, the manager asked how I got on. I said "They were great, I'll buy another 2 packs". With the look he gave me, I think I'm the first customer to buy 48 condoms in 24 hours.
