Looking for escape from the relentless drudgery of life? Don’t worry, there is a way out of the Loser’s Club

Animation & Artists Moving Image 1974 7 mins


Are you a member of the Losers Club? You don’t have to have a thankless job at the head office of Drudgery Co., or obnoxious children, or the commute from hell to join – but it helps! Prolific amateur animator Derek Phillips had largely removed himself from the rat-race, but that didn’t stop him bringing his unique mixture of humour and pessimism to the subject. Of the over 40 films that Derek Phillips produced in his home in a decade, this was one of the most epic.
