Guy Capper has brought his double-barrelled skills as animator and comic to short films, award-winning commercials (the Hedgehog Speed Safety campaign) and the stage. Robert and Sheepy — the memorable animated creations of Capper and Jemaine Clement — were seen in short film series The Pen, and Radiradirah. Capper has also featured in a series of multi-media shows which mix stand-up comedy with claymation characters.
Jemaine Clement is the bespectacled half of folk-comedy duo Flight of the Conchords, who achieved international cult status in their own HBO series. Clement's screen career began after he appeared on 90s sketch shows Telly Laughs and Skitz. Following his big screen debut in Tongan Ninja, he starred in misfit romance Eagle vs Shark. In 2014 he co-directed and acted in hit vampire comedy What We Do in the Shadows.
Tim Capper's urge to make inanimate objects move has taken on animation, stop motion and digital effects. After working on commercials and The Frighteners, George Port tapped him to create effects for the final seasons of Xena and Hercules. Capper has gone on to supervise effects for Spartacus and many Taika Waititi projects, and directed music videos and award-winning stop motion promos (for road safety and MTV).
