Since being released online the new film has had “amazing” feedback, from different places around the world, some saying how nostalgic the production made them feel.
Mr Harding said: “I have had amazing feedback saying that the episode reminded viewers of TV stop-motions series from their childhood, and also on how great the editing, story and whole production was, and that it’s the best so far in the Zey series.”
The handmade set is quaint, with lovely attention to details such as bus stop signs and exhaust fumes made out of wool.
The Adventure starts with Zey getting on the bus to go and visit his Grandad Zeppe.
This leads to the discovery of a time machine and the start of a great adventure.
He has a talk with Clara the Cat and arrives at his grandfather’s house to find him unwell.
His Grandfather Zeppe then shows him a time machine he has made.
Both Zey and his Grandad embark on a journey through time, meeting a host of creatures from different time periods, including a giant mouse that tells them they are “at the end of time”.
