Once all the parts were soldered together I cleaned them up in vinegar to get the burnt scorch marks off and built up the armature itself. I have to say that soldering an armature is brilliant it feels so solid and much more professional, I will be doing this with all my armatures from now on and I cannot wait to get animating this fella!!

Good news! My graduation film The Piper has been selected to play at 2 screening events in March.
The first screening is overseas at the Montreal Nuit Blanche on the 1st of march 1st. This is a one off screening of selected highlights from the Stop MoMontreal festival, that The Piper was screen at last October. More information on this festival check out the site here!
The second screening is the 2014 Animation Showcase Chester International Film Festival on 6-15 of March. This is the first time that the Chester International Festival has had an animation section and I’m very proud to be apart of it! For More information on this festival check out the site here!
If you get a chance to go to any of these events and see The Piper please do get in-touch as I would love to here your feedback.

Over the last 2 years I have been lucky enough to do 3 weeks’ worth of work at CITV working on the Stop Motion Shorts Compost Corner. If you have not seen Compost Corner before check some out below.

Behind the scenes photos of what I got up to taken by myself.
In the last year Compost Corner has been nominated for a BAFTA, screened at the Bradford Animation festival and most recently nominated for not one but two British Animation Awards known as the BAA's. I'd like to say now a big thank you the Wes for letting me be a very small part of it all and a massive congrats to him and all the team involved, it grate to see a small production getting recognised and I have my fingers crossed for you!
