BTB Film – Edd The Duck: Ducking The Past

In his youth, Edd The Duck was one of the biggest stars on the BBC. In this frank and mercifully short documentary, we attempt to find out what happened next as well as showcasing some never before seen interviews with other performers of that era.

This is a very scrappy little film that a few of us made back in 2009. I think I shot some of it, Paul Wade shot some and Steve shot a bit too. I flinch slightly at the quality of the audio and video when I look back at it now, but I think the concept is sound and I’m proud of the Paddington Bear gag.

Props to my wife for her excellent Finger Mouse puppetry.

BTB Film – Edd The Duck: Ducking The Past

In his youth, Edd The Duck was one of the biggest stars on the BBC. In this frank and mercifully short documentary, we attempt to find out what happened next. With the help of some never before seen interviews with other performers of that era, we set out to answer the question: Just how far does a duck have to migrate to escape his past?

Produced for the 2 Days Laughter Festival 2009. Winner of the audience Choice Award and recipient of several other nominations. This is one of my favourite shorts from the BTB vault. Sadly cut from the final version and lost to the ages is a scene where Edd re-enacts the famous “I’m a bright, shining star” moment from the closing scene of Boogie Nights. Given what we’re posting up next week, that’s probably for the best.
