As for festivals that I’ll be attending, I’ll be flying over to Alcine, near Madrid, which should be a treat.

In the same week Ian and I will be heading down to Bristol for Animated Encounters for a mingle and the awards ceremony. It’s a particular pleasure to be part of Encounters as it is BAFTA, EFA and Oscar accredited! That’s what I call accredited.

In a couple of weeks we’ll also be bigging it up in Wolverhampton for FLIP Festival, which will be featuring the incredible Oscar winning indy animator, Bill Plympton.


I was also pleasantly surprised to see that we made an appearance at Vilnius Film Shorts‘ opening night. Keep an eye out for the bear. The bear’s amazing.
