"Just put lots of snow on everything"

Back at Aardman this week working on a Christmas version of the Wallace and Grom's N-Power house.
It's been extra lovely due to the constant presence of Dick Williams who has been using the facilities, he is an inspiration and has a lot of wonderful stories I could sit and listen to forever. A lovely chap.

It's been two weeks (I think?) since Encounters SFF The last few years I have volunteered but felt that this time I wanted to see more and not spend so much of it rushing around. I saw a few things but spent a little more time supping coffee. The highlights (out of the few I saw) Were definitely Mary and Max, and the children's jury awards. The latter was probably down to the high production values of the majority which I always felt was a bit unfair but it was very enjoyable.

Just finished designs for the Frank Baum, Monarch of Mo pitch. Good so far but we shall see what happens! Now I am making adjustments to Dinnersaurs and adding an extra scene, I feel happier now I've extended it. It all looks a lot less rushed but it will be nice when I can leave it alone.

After a really quick turnaround Taio Cruz's new video for single 'No Other One', Directed by Nick Bartleet is ready for viewing. Right at the bottom of this post.

(And for those of you who like this kind of thing you can see the 'behind the scenes' here.You can occasionally spot me standing around looking like I'm not doing not much, but contrary to what you see I was actually working hard, it was just a very long day.)
