Kids Tell the Best Stories!

kids tell the best stories flyer.jpgI’m on a new mission.  I’m collecting stories.  Spontaneous stories told by children.

I am animating a few of them too!  Plus, once the animated series is out I will publish a beautiful book through Sojo Publishing Mouse, so you guys can read the stories every night!

Here is story number 1, written by a 3 year old called Morris.

“The Baby, the Sound and the Bird”

Thunk of the Day ‘Bras’ has been selected to be played @Short Stack, Broadway Cinema, Nottingham.

Hooray! There is nothing more satisfying than watching your film playing out to an audience at the coolest cinema in the universe. Broadway Cinema is pretty much the epicentre of all things creative in Nottingham, so I am delighted to be having another Sojo Animation played on the big screen.

Thunk of the Day ‘Bras’

24th September 6pm as part of Short Stack

Thank you so much to David Lilley of Short Stack, for creating such awesome opportunities for new film makers like me.

This is the 6th ‘Thunk’ in a series of thunks bringing the spontaneous thoughts of children to life through kid’s artwork, and this one is all about BRAS!

Voice and thunk of the mighty Lady T and artwork by the brilliant Summer.

Well done you awesome little girls!

The importance of hearing our children

The importance of hearing our children

Normally, the commissioned work I do is a separate process to the work I do as a passion, but this film was different.  It is everything that I think and feel.  I loved every moment of creating it because the message is so important and so simple.

That is why I have decided to share it with you all.

‘The importance of hearing our children.’

A Sojo Animation film for the BME network, about the importance of listening, hearing, engaging and playing with our children, featuring the most awesome little girl, Tiana and her brilliant parents Sophie and Alex, and also Norman Wright from The Wright Initiative.
Commissioned by Nottinghamshire County Council, put together by the BME Network with support from their corporate equality group.
Massive thanks to Alison Lewis.

Big Bad Wolf

My latest Sojo animation ‘Big Bad Wolf’ has gone a little nuts over on our Sojo Facebook page, with over 30,000 views!  For a post that hasn’t been sponsored, that’s pretty BRILLIANT!   Well done to Amahrya, the little girl who created such a fabulous ending for the story, that everybody felt compelled to share it.


Many of you have been asking about the process and how the ‘Big Bad Wolf’ became the animation it is.  I promise I will write a blog post explaining all… but for now, you could have a peek at this lovely Cameo Launch article all about Sojo Animation! Eeeeeek!  I gave away quite a lot of secrets, so check it out 🙂

Did you come along to Nottingham Lakeside Arts for the children’s animation workshop? Well here is our finished film!

Here it is, all of your amazing creations in one lovely animation.

I just want to say how much I enjoyed working with all of you.  To think that our youngest animator was only 4 years old and our oldest was 12 years old!  You all worked so brilliantly together, and the characters you created were awesome.

I hope you all feel super proud.


Also I’d like to say thank you to Nottingham Lakeside Arts.  It is always such gorgeous place to work, building wise, but also staff wise.  You’re all lovely!
