Stop Motion Special
25th October 2018
Our first ever Animorsels! We screened animations featuring a variety of stop motion techniques, plasticine, foam, cassette tapes, rubber bands, naked people, painted people and twisty people.
Jim Parkyn gave a great talk, taking us through his model making career with Aardman. Amongst others Jim spoke about Morph, Shaun the Sheep and our favourite, Trapdoor! Beerrrrrkkkkk.
We had some great Halloween microMorsels entries with a Spooooooky theme and lots of people got stuck into the mini Morph kits we gave out, making dragons, birds and even a model of Jim himself (or it may have been Mr.T, we can't be sure).
Read a little more in the RTS Midlands Article.
Jim (who used to be a cheese maker!) has worked as a senior model maker with Aardman since 2000 on animations such as Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were Rabbit, Shaun the Sheep, Creature Comforts and Chicken Hunt.
Jim is also the creator of The Amazing Scene Machine and an Aardman Ambassador, running model making & animation workshops for schools and team building experiences.
