Archive video about Doghouse featuring Jake West, Emily Booth... and Bob Keen!

Collecting images for my 2009 Jake West interview, I came across this fascinating historical document. Back in 2007, Carnaby Films created an eleven-minute pre-production featurette for Jake's film Doghouse, with Jake himself, Emily Booth and the great Bob Keen, who was at that time attached to do the make-up effects. The whole thing was shot in Bob's workshop at Pinewood (where I filmed a featurette about King Kong, around the same time).

I hadn't seen this for ages but it's still on YouTube, so here it is. Particularly interesting are some of the early design sketches for the various zombirds.
