For the past few weeks I’ve been running an animation project for the wonderful Misfits Theatre Company, here in Bristol, along with Max Simpson and Sam Owen of Birmingham-based band Pram. It’s going excellently, and everyone’s very excited about it all – making up their own characters and stories, puppetmaking, as well as getting to play and record sounds on the amazing retro electronic instruments brought in by Sam and Max. Just two weeks left to go, and then it’s time to edit it all and dub on the sound ready for a special premiere at Aardman Studios special screening room on April 27th! We’re all terribly excited about that too, as you can imagine.
As usual, I’ve been too busy to remember to take any photos of the sessions so far, but the Misfits are doing their own blog, so click here if you’d like to have a look at some pics and read what the participants think of it all!!
