Painstakingly created over a four year period while a student at the California Institute of the Arts, animator John Ross shot Gork live action on 16mm film and then spent the majority of that time painting cels and rotoscoping it the old-fashioned way with a "downshooter" camera system.

Interesting note: Ross was taught how to rotoscope by Michael Patterson. An instructor at CalArts at the time, Patterson was also a freelance artist who, with his wife Candace Reckinger, was in the midst of making a music video for the song "Take On Me" by an obscure Norwegian pop group known as a-ha.
