Wishing you an animated Christmas!

Christmas came early this year for as I was busy helping year 10 and 11 pupils at Sydney Smith School in Hull create animated backdrops for the school pantomime. As fas as I know, this is the first time a school has used large scale back projection for animation as part of a theatre production. Here are some stills from behind the scenes. The set design is by the student director. Merry Christmas!

Christmas shopping with Riffs of Rage!

Yeah, it's been ages. So much going on right now, that what with preparing for Christmas, (Ho, ho, ho) blogging has rather suffered. If you've been Christmas shopping in Newcastle, you might have seen Riffs of Rage in all its cartoon glory on entering the train station! It's playing to thousands of happy shoppers on a big screen there. Hurrah!
