Bring Back Morph Kickstarter Campaign
Directed by Merlin Crossingham
Morph is the animated clay character who made his TV debut in 1977 in the children’s BBC art programme Take Hart. He was created by Peter Lord and David Sproxton, the co-founders of Aardman Animations and went on to become a regular fixture on children’s television throughout the 70s and 80s.
In October 2013, almost 40 years after his TV debut, Aardman launched a campaign on the crowdfunding website to bring back Morph for a new series of adventures. 30 days and 2654 backers later the production began on the 15 brand new episodes of Morph. Staying true to the original format, these episodes were shot using clay and traditional stop-frame animation in Morph’s original home at the Aardman studios in Bristol.
The first of the new episodes premiered on Morph’s YouTube channel on 4th July 2014, receiving a huge amount of coverage in the media.
