Happy New Year Everybody from Small World!
2011 was a big year in lots of ways here on Small World Island (in Bristol, in case you were wondering..), and we made some great animations with lots of fantastic people, including the lovely and talented Year Ones at Upton on Severn and Great Barr primary schools, some wonderful grown ups at Change the Record, more lovely children at Shambala and the always extraordinary kids and staff at Acorns Children’s Hospice in Birmingham. If you want to see the films we made they’re all on here, either on the Showreel page or scroll down through the News section below.
2012 is looking very creative already, and I’m very excited to have been commissioned to run an animation project for the brilliant Misfits Theatre Company in February. Sam Owen and Max Simpson of Pram will be working on the sound & music, which will be fantastic.
Small World is also extremely chuffed to be working for Welsh National Opera‘s Max team (WNO’s outreach and education dept) later this year on a community animation project- more about that to come soon..
Other new projects include animation workshops at Gigglefest at Birmingham Central Library, and projects for Acorns and the CBSO; an animated music video for the amazing Dog Face Sockets, and my own animation “The Library”, which I’m very excited about (go to http://clairesianevans.tumblr.com/ for more info)…
Wishing everybody a lovely New Year and a happy and creative 2012!!
