2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 3,700 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people.

Big Knights Workshop

Hello Big Knights, your animation will be here very soon, apologies for the delay… (have another look on Wednesday). Thank you for your patience!

“Party at the Bottom of the Garden!” – Bristol Festival of Puppetry

And here’s the second animation from the BFP DIY animation workshops – sorry for the delay and hope you all enjoy the edit I’ve done! Party on!! 🙂

Bristol Festival of Puppetry “Excitement at the Bottom of the Garden!”

I had a fantastic time working at Bristol Festival of Puppetry last weekend running the excellent “DIY Animation Workshops” at Watershed Cinema. So many thanks to everyone who came along, and my fantastic BFP helpers, not forgetting the awesome Rachel McNally who programmes and organises the whole festival (don’t know how she does it…)

Here is the edited and soundtracked version of the animation we made in the morning session – it’s amazing! All characters made and filmed in under 3 hours. Crikey! Hope you like it!



Professor Crackpot’s Holiday!

Here it is, guys! Sorry for the long wait – hope you enjoy watching it, and really well done for all your hard work and creativity!!

Hello, I’m running workshops at the end of August at Bristol Puppetfest, come down and enjoy the mayhem!



PS I think the puppet spider in the pic was called Susan…

August Animation Workshop


I’ll be running a two-day animation workshop at the Greenbank Pub on 5th and 6th August for 7-10 year olds (though keen 6 and 11 year olds will be considered!). The workshops run from 11am-4pm on both days. Get in touch if you would like to book (a lot of regulars have already signed up).

This is the kind of thing we’ll be making…
