An animated short film created using still photography, Dog Tired is the latest piece from Brit animation pranksters the McLeod Brothers. Myles and Greg reveal how the project came about.

Dog Tired is a dark, comic tale of Steve, a man driven to distraction by sleep deprivation. A lonely night-security guard, his attempts at daytime sleep are made impossible by his thug neighbour’s incessant barking dog.

<p>
When he starts to hallucinate about dogs everywhere from dog-head milkmen to howling wolves among the museum exhibits where he works at night, he’s forced to take desperate measures to solve the problem.

Told in B&W, in a cut-out style of animation, Dog Tired comes from the feverish imaginations of Spark & Zoom Productions and animation duo the McLeod brothers. Known for their Blair-Bush satirical shorts on Atomfilms and the viral Election 2005 spoof The Uncredibles, Greg and Myles McLeod’s work includes Spike & Kichi, a kids series of short animations for BBC One; Super Charlie & Super Lauren shown at BAF 2003, and the experimental short The Beardmaker shown at the Commonwealth Film Festival in 2004.
