Derek Hayes and Phil Austin, the film's creators!

Derek Hayes.  If you miss the picture of the old lady, sorry, but I got a real photo of the man this time.

Derek Hayes' Filmography from IMDB

Mr. Hayes continues to be an active and respected animation director in the United Kingdom. I need to see more of his films, and so do you.

From "The Miracle Maker", a Jesus story (check out the links page on this site!) to more out-of-the-way, off-the-wall projects, these should be worth tracking down.

Phil Austin himself, no longer a default photo.

The late Phil Austin worked with Derek Hayes on SKYWHALES and another short, The Victor, among other projects. The Internet Movie DataBase (IMDB) has _two_ listings for him,

Philip Austin's IMDB listing

and another listing here

--but the second listing confuses him with Phil Austin from Firesign Theater. It's a pity they can't get together and have a good chuckle about it.

As to other people involved in production, I did manage to find this fellow, who many of you will recognize.  Robert Llewellyn, besides having many "L"s in his name, did some wonderful voice work for "Skywhales".  More recently, he's been seen on Channel 4's "Scrapheap Challenge", known in the States as TLC's "Junkyard Wars".  Be sure to check out his home page for more info.
