I have been having a busy patch and I admit guiltily that I have been contributing to another blog, temporarily neglecting my own news from the bog. Emily Tracy and I have been helping Gayhurst Community School to make their First Light film about sneezing and germs and you can read all about it on their blog. We've been helping the children to make an experimental animation with archive footage; we spend alot of time frowning and scribbling notes between workshops because we are trying out ideas and techniques that are strange and new to us both. Of course the children take it all in their stride and with glee and gusto.
I have also returned to Anglia Ruskin University to teach a little bit on the animation module, which I always really enjoy and next week Wendy Scott and I start a Creative Partnerships project near Tilbury Town.
