The time was passed so pleasantly

Hey, remember ages ago when we said 50% of Emily&Anne were going to Vienna to teach a week long animation workshop as part of Tricky Women Summer School inspired by the poem The secretary chant by Marge Piercy? Well that happened! And there are photos to prove it:

Okay, so one photo. Promotion is not our forte.

That's Phillip up there. I advised him to paint his hand and animate it and he did! Would you like to see the finished film, including the above animated hand, and many other animated goodies besides? Well, guess what, it's embedded here, just for you:

It was a really wonderful week in Vienna; I loved it. Everyone I met at the Summer School was lovely, and working with the workshop participants was very, very fun. I hope they are proud of the finished film. They gave me a load of chocolate at the end, so I guess they were happy too!

The rhyme is losing to the riddling

We used to be pretty good at maintaining this blog and our "notable" activities, and lately (and by lately I mean the last 12 months or more), we are just rubbish. Well I don't know if that is about to change, but here is a new post nonetheless!

We've been asked to make a film for Blackpool Council's WordPool Festival of Poetry. As everyone knows, we love a reading and libraries and words, so we are very happy to working on this project. The short (very short) animation will be screened at the Blackpool Illuminations in the evening on October 2nd, which is when the winning poem will be announced and read by its author.

Details are here, and lookit, it's a poster:
