Giles Timms’ “Dead All Along”

November 12th, 2009


This week’s cute and creepy Edward Gorey-inspired “Dead All Along” comes to Channel Frederator courtesy of animator Giles Timms.

Channel Frederator:This is your second film featuring Ceri Frost’s music. What is your relationship to him as an artist and what draws you to his music?

Giles Timms: Ceri is the brother of one of my friends from art college in Wales. The family also owns and runs an organic farm, Blaencamel Farm, near Aberaeron in South Wales where I worked one idyllic summer and hung out with the Frost family.

I really like working with Ceri because his music inspires me and he’s very trusting of the creative process. I feel very fortunate to have worked with him :)

CF: How long have you been interested in Gorey’s illustrations and style?

GT: In high school I read The Gashlycrumb Tinies and I’ve been a huge fan ever since.

CF: The animation in “Dead All Along” is pretty slick! Did you encounter any problems during the process?

GT: No real problems, but it was a challenge to try and create a story in two minutes.


CF: Are you working on anything new you can tell us about?

I have recently gained representation with RW Media and have several treatments for animated music videos in the works, so hopefully I’ll have a new video out in the new year. You can follow my work related news on my blog, facebook and twitter.

CF: What creeps you out the most?

GT: The Exorcist…

CF: Anything you’d like to add?

GT: Thanks Bailee, for inviting me to be a part of Channel Frederator again – always a pleasure.

*Blush* … I mean, you’re welcome.
