Available and free to view for the next week on Film 4, Mary and the Witch’s Flower is a charming feature-length Ghibli-style animation with a bit of a Harry Potter vibe going on! Great for some lockdown escapism for kids – and grownup Ghibli fans! 🙂
A beautifully animated French-Swiss stop-motion animation about the adventures of a courgette who wants to travel to Mars…. Oops, sorry, that’s not true! 😉
Do read on…
My Life as a Courgette tells the story of a little boy who likes to be called “Courgette” who has to go and live in a children’s home. Available on Film 4 for the next six days. Highly recommended for all age groups – even grownups 🙂 And it really is beautifully done.
If you feel inspired to make your own stop motion animation afterwards, have a look at my FREE DOWNLOADABLE STOP MOTION ANIMATION WORKSHOP and make your own film. All you need is a smartphone/tablet and some imagination. Have a go!
Created during the lockdown by MC Stevie Youngculture, this is a brilliantly atmospheric music video, featuring Stevie’s own vocals. I love the sound system detail! 🙂
Feeling inspired? Stevie used the 3D animation tutorial download I posted a couple of weeks ago to make this. Why not have a go at making your own and send me the results? I promise I’ll post it on my Youtube channel and here – as long as there are no really rude bits or sweary words etc! 😉
Stay well and stay creative everyone!
