My short film MInd Games will screen as part of A Voyage Through Animation which celebrates historical and contemporary innovation in animation, matching films by recent artists with seminal work from the last 90 years including Man Ray’s Dadaist experiments, Lotte Reiniger’s silhouette animation, Russian collage by Ivan Ivanov and master of stop-frame Jan Svankmajer. All films receive a live score by live cinema pioneers The Cabinet of Living Cinema, who will outline the innovations in animation that have shaped the artform.

The evening will also incorporate live animation by audiovisual artist Noriko Okaku and a selection of animated short films programmed by Whirlygig Cinema to showcase emerging talent in the genre.This event is part of the Scala Beyond season.

Mike 360 Played at Raindance Film festival

Mike 360 Played at Raindance Film festival, The Screening was: Friday 1 October 2010 at 5:15pm. We went along and it was an interesting selection of films, all very self referential, filmy and genre based.

They accidentally played mine twice, which was an unexpected bonus! They obviously liked it a lot, either that or the person in the projection booth didn’t know what they were doing. I have a feeling it was the latter as there was a kid in a wheel chair in the audience who’s film wasn’t played at all, at the end his distraught mum got up to complain.

Wabbit Wedding

Circa: 1990

This was the first full on cel painted and colour animation film I ever made. When I was about fifteen. It was a present for the wedding of some family friends.

I did all the animation and my mum helped a lot with the painting of backgrounds and cels. It was shot on a big old clunky U-matic rostrum in a studio belonging to the lovely Animation People.
