The festival premiere...

..of the very old man is on 17th August at 2pm at the Edinburgh International Film Fest in the programme called McLaren 1. Thanks Edinburgh. All the films that I have made have premiered in the Filmhouse Cinema 1, it's a special place for me.
After that the film is going to be shown at the wonderful London International Animation Festival sometime between the 21st and 26th August. LIAF is at the Curzon Soho, so it is also special because I can cycle there.
Shelly's animation night is coming up..

can you come along?


I've been doing a lot of workshops recently. My friend Emily is half of Lumina ( they have been working with the Thames Festival to deliver workshops in primary schools. It involves making millions of lovely pom pom's out of carrier bags, then carrying them home on the tube. I've been leaning heavily on journey planner. You can see the pom pom's assembled into a magnificent dome over the weekend of the 15th September at the Thames Festival.
Today I was working for the Film and Video Workshop in a secondary school delivering a talk and an animation taster for Skillset. What was truly wonderful about the talk with Kevin Griffiths and Susan Beattie was that they brought a womble and the original monkey, (Johnny Vegas's little friend). The monkey was very silky inside, I didn't hold the womble.
