So now it's pretty much Autumn, and I rounded off the summer by running some live animation workshops at End of the Road festival in Dorset. We invited festival folk to make a few seconds of stop-frame animation using just their bodies and a few props. So much fun!

Here's a wee taster of what we were getting up to - a little dance-off starring Kate, Robin and yours truly (and Kirsty is pictured below!)

Kirsty, the fourth member of team Humanimation

I absolutely loved doing these workshops, but it was hard work and I had a lot of help making them happen! So it feels only right to give a shout out of huge appreciation to the fantastically enthusiastic Humanimation team members: film maker extraordinaire Kate Jessop, all-hands-on-deck happy monster Robin Strigner, and the artistic-tastic Kirsty Clarke - they kept the workshops going and made them fun and exciting for everyone involved. Such an ace team. My Dad, too, who helped me by building the backdrop with his wizard carpentry skills! My stepdad, Neil, was working at EOTR anyway, and was a positive presence all round, and of course thanks to EOTR for having us. Also my dog, Meg, just because. And my Mum. And my Granny. Alright that's enough.

If you were involved with the workshops, I'm currently in the process of editing the films and hope to have them up on here by the end of the week, so please watch this space!
