The first episode of Fugus the Bogeyman, an unmissible “three fart special,” began on Sunday 27 December 2015 on Sky 1!
Production Company: Mildew Productions, The Imaginarium Studios
Directed by Catherine Morshead
Produced by John Chapman and executive produced by Jonathan Cavendish, Chloe Sizer
Starring Timothy Spall, Victoria Wood, Keeley Hawes, Marc Warren, Joanna Scanlan and Andy Serkis as the narrator
The three part series, which took centre stage on Sky 1’s Christmas line up, explores the dirty, grotty and snotty underground home of Bogeymen and women. As Fungus and his family’s Bogeyworld collides with the clean, dry, and distinctly unbogey-like “surface world,” they find themselves desperately trying to fit in with the dry cleaners and lead a “normal” life.
With an all-star cast, including Timothy Spall, Victoria Wood, Joanna Scanlan and Andy Serkis as the narrator, the goal was always focused on being able to inform the CGI Fungus’s performance as much as possible from the artists playing him in real life throughout the process.
DNegTV are delighted to have worked on one of the most of the most ambitious VFX projects attempted for British Television, comprising both live action and CGI hand animated creation to bring Raymond Briggs’s beloved book to life.
Sure to be a heartwarming, hilarious and slimy treat, don’t miss Fungus the Bogeyman! See below for the latest trailer!
