Jemaine - A bit on the side

As Jemaine is a busy guy, I thought it a good idea to update in more detail on his projects outside of Flight of The Conchords.

Claymation shorts - The Pen series by Guy Capper and Jemaine Clement

The Pen - By Jemaine Clement and Guy Capper 'Baa baa baa baa bloody baa' 'Baaaaa ba?'

Yes, you may well ask! A sheep with perfect teeth? Such a pearly set of nashers. How is this possible and what on earth does this picture have to do with the Conchords? Does the fact its a project Jemaine has been working on help?

The Pen short film series was developed by Guy Capper and Jemaine Clement using stop-motion claymation techniques. That explains it then eh. Shown at New Zealand film festivals in early 2007 and now some are available to view online thanks to Guy and Jemaine. It follows the adventures of Sheepy and Robert. The series was produced with support from the Screen Innovation Production Fund.

The Pen series provides a 'glimpse of rural life through the eyes of two very blokey, very kiwi sheep. Their conversational meanderings provide a NZ-centric comment on such universal themes as male sexuality, life and death and employment conditions. These four short films - Life After Death, The Pen, Getting Shorn and the World Premiere of How to Baa - are a celebration of the iconic kiwi bloke. It's not fashionable or politically correct, but these films celebrate the good things about owning a Swandri, a slab of beer, and your own set of clippers.' (Taken from here )
