Worzel Gummidge Series 2 – Episode 1 Guy Forks

Mackenzie Crook reunites with Detectorists’ star Toby Jones in a new episode of his critically acclaimed adaptation of Worzel Gummidge.

After a successful series 1, JAM VFX was approached by Leopard Pictures to work on 3 new episodes for Series 2. Mackenzie has created three new one-hour films: Guy Forks, Twitchers, and Calliope Jane – inspired by the classic books by Barbara Euphan Todd, in which he once again directs and stars.

The JAM team was tasked with creating crows, choughs, and a robin, Worzel’s very close companion Winter George.  It would have been lovely to use the real-life Robin that Mackenzie tamed in his garden a few years ago, and it was a topic of discussion at pre-production but for various reasons, this was not feasible.  He did however serve as the perfect reference and our cgi version was created in his image.
