Where have you been? Have you got over your David Bowie thing yet? It’s all very well being upset dear, but people will stop looking at this if you just flounce off you know.

“Thanks a lot Mum. Actually, I have been trying some animating.” So where is it then?

“I think I have to start again. It’s all flickery. It’s rubbish. Sometimes I just feel like giving up. I’m old, I’m mad and I can’t do it … technically I mean.”

Nothing wrong with being old and mad, dear. I tried it myself before I died. And if that’s the way it goes … Well *San Fairy Ann.

The Conversation So Far

I realised that my encounters with Syb make their own animation. So I decided to put them through my animation software, agonise over them, edit them and turn them into a trailer. Or rather … a reprise, a recap. I don’t know really ……… a film. That’s it. Just call it a very short film.

 

Recap: How this started

So with this learning project of stop-motion animation, I decide I need to learn the lip-sync thing… which means trying claymation. And so I make this head which seems to be “Me”.       Er… younger. Because I am quite old.
