Animation and Laban

On Sunday I participated in one of Sarah Perry's unique workshops designed to equip animators with some awareness of movement and acting.  This workshop was based on Laban's effort's.  It was really interesting to try and analyse movement through trying it all out, in the company of other animators.

Pas the Pasol & Musucl Bums

We've been celebrating a special birthday here.  We made some wrapping paper for pass the parcel (or hold onto it if you can) with a brilliant set of rubber stamps I bought on ebay over the summer.

F.Percy Smith

If you have half an hour to spare, there's a lovely BBC Radio 4 iplayer programme about F. Percy Smith called The Balancing Bluebottle.  I've mentioned him before in relation to the Watch Me Move show at the Barbican, where Birth of Flower (1910) was exhibited. The fantastic BFI archive has a few of his films online as well, this spidery one (using a mechanical fly) is really fantastic.  Percy Smith aims to "administer the powder of instruction within the jam of entertainment."  What a brilliant fellow he was, and a little bit eccentric too.
