Free Speech for Hamsters

It’s been 14 years since I made my first ‘Public Information Film for Hamsters’. I’ve wanted to return to my favourite creations ever since, but whenever I’ve had time for a personal project I’ve always felt obliged to use the opportunity to learn some new software, or develop some new style or technique.
I started animating this film on paper, but later decided that it would be quicker to draw straight into Flash, and was glad to find that I could do it that way without losing the ‘look’ of the characters.
I wanted to take the opportunity to speak out on an issue I care about, namely freedom of expression, and how it can be stifled by political correctness and – in my view – misplaced sensitivity.
