An introduction to Don't Flush:

Don't Flush began life as a simple technical exercise, to see if I could pull off a paper-cutout animation using just a couple of sheets of copier paper, a couple of pens, a camera, some blu-tack, and my bedroom wall. But the story took on a life of its own, and with some help from sound design it developed from a mere test clip into a two-minute short film.

I chose Darlan and Nagg as the characters for the film due to their compact and easy-to-cut-out shape, as well as for Darlan's eccentricity.
