Monday, Monday - so good to me

The East End Film Festival starts today, hurrah. The Festival lasts for 6 days across different venues around, unsurprisingly enough, East London. This year is the Festival's tenth anniversary, and to mark it, they are doing something a little extra. On May Day bank holiday there will be additional, free screenings all over the place, including A Film about Poo and Spin Spun Span! Both our films! How nice of EEFF, they have good taste. For more information about the Movie Mayday, click here.

You wear your skirt like a flag

A few weeks ago we finished production on a little animated film for Power Play Golf. Power Play Golf is a new version of the game, but it's dynamic and thus shorter. There's two flags on every hole, and so half the number of holes to play. On each hole you have to decide which flag to play - the Power Play flag being the harder of the two, but the one with more points.

As you may be able to tell, I am not particularly (at all) sporty, but I can draw, and so can Emily, and so we made this:

You can see the video on the Power Play Golf website too, and read more about the new game there.

Emily and I really enjoyed making this one, we lucky to work with Andy and Marcus at Power Play, who let us get creative. Well done to Puppet Orchestra too for some ace sound design.

Idle, idle, idle, idle. Protect the nest, protect the title

It's all about zines this month, and this Sunday 17th it's the London Zine Symposium 2011. Nest will of course be there, as will some of our zines, which will be available for purchase. I think we'll have some Spin Spun Span themed badges and/or flipbooks for sale too.

Would you like to see the poster? Well here it is. You better like it...

...because Emily and I designed it!

Have fun.

Turn up the lights in here baby, extra bright, I want y'all to see this

A little while ago, Emily and I finished work on some animated segments for a short film. Directed by Liberty Smith and Ronan Glynn, Behind the Light is a documentary about Britain's lighthouses, and the now defunct role of their keepers.

You can watch it here, and if you like it, please do vote for it in Shooting People's film of the month competition.

It was nice and quite unusual to work with another co-directing team. I think us duos should stick together. Good luck with the film Ronan and Liberty!

I want to publish zines and rage against machines

Emily and I are going to be in Oxford this Saturday for the Editions of You zine fayre. We will be selling all sorts...



Letter writing sets!

...And zines!

I think we're going to have at least five zine titles on the stall, including our new one A Book about Poo, and hopefully another new one which I, er, haven't made yet. Hopefully there will also be zoetrope kits for sale too, just as soon as I find them. I can remember tidying them away about 6 weeks ago. Where did I tidy them away to? Who can say. I don't live in a big flat, so you wouldn't think this would be a problem, but there you go...
