I am over the moon that my 3 little ‘Thunk of the Day’ animations have been selected for this! Here’s Thunk no.1, incase you know not what I speak of.
The concept is brilliantly simple… 20 short films from 20 filmmakers based in the East Midlands. Thank you Beeston Film for another excuse to celebrate the huge pool of creative talent we are surrounded by.
Tomorrow Sojo Animation will be joining Lakeside Arts at Woodlands School to run a World Book Day themed workshop. We’ll be diving into the world of Roald Dahl and creating some of our own particularly horrible characters! I feel very proud to be involved. Thanks to the West 8 Education Improvement Partnership, which aims to: Raise standards of literacy. Increase parental involvement to improve school attendance and raise standards of achievement. Raise aspirations of children, young people, and their families in the community. Further develop the extended schools and and services in the area.
Wow! What a lovely day. I met some wonderful kids this morning, who created some fantastic characters. I wish I could share with you the presentations the children gave when sharing artwork with the group. Agh well… Here are a few pics…
This is a 35 year old lady who works with children and has 198 of her own children. She has red eyes, but not because she’s evil.
These dogs were all drawn by the same child. You wouldn’t believe how quickly he could create these sketches. I was completely blown away.
This was an evil platypus who was able to plug himself up to a conductor and harness the energy from lightening to do terrible things.
So it turns out that Woodlands School, a special needs school in Aspley, is full of the most incredibly brilliant children.
