"Reena" is a delightful tale of gentle countryside japes, starring Mr Nicky and his woodland friends, Reena, Eric and Fox. Inspired by children’s TV classics like Fingerbobs, Bagpuss and Teddy Edward, it features music by The Original Beekeepers with support from members of fellow band Shammy Leather, narration by acclaimed voice artist Lincoln Wood, lovely photography by John Coulson and Tom Owen, and video editing by Simon Beecroft.
The House of Three Cheers has collaborated with The Original Beekeepers to create a video album of music and visuals. The album consists mainly of 'lockdown songs' and is on the experimental/ambient side. Given three words to describe it, the creators chose these six: 1. lockdown 2. overload 3. paranoia 4. distractions 5. travel 6. dreams. The videos, created by the House of Three Cheers, include ambient mashups, black and white TV static glitch-fests, and various forms of animation including stop-motion and drawn animation.
