Gordon the Gopher (1991)

Concept and creative process

Phillip Schofield presents a programme with Gordon the Gopher and Sue Devaney. The titles are a busy compilation of a film animated background sequence with the live antics of Gordon the Gopher keyed over it using a chromakey blue screen. A further composited layer of Phillip Schofield interacting with the puppet adds to the mix and establishes the presenter and his relationship with Gordon the puppet.
