I designed a series of mysterious machines that churn out an assortment of multi-coloured craft delights. 
In keeping with the show's theme, everything was lovingly handcrafted and achieved in camera. 
Amazing model maker Miles Ascough masterfully brought these designs into three dimensional reality, giving many of the machines real working mechanisms. 
Shot beautifully by Matthew Day in the basement of Clapham Road Studios with stop motion animation by Tim Allen.
This is the full 'directors cut' including some shots that ended up on the cutting room floor.
