Sharon Colman animation director story development

Badgered (2005)


Badgered is a short animated film produced at the National Film and Television School.  I wanted to write a satire about the environment from an animals point of view.  I grew up near a place in Scotland where they store conventional missiles under the hills.  You could drive past and never know they where there.  So I often wondered what an underground dwelling animal would think about that.  But it was to be a comedy and I didn’t want the film to be preachy.  Once I decided on a badger, I focused on his story, and the environmental issue of missiles under the hills became an under tone.  I normally write film backwards, coming up with the premise or the ending first.  Badgered was hand drawn and coloured with mostly traditional painting techniques.
