Very clever and funny and well worth paying attention to for 10 mins.

I would recommend you watch the live version first and listen to the words.

Now enjoy it again to some fantastic animation.

In pursuit of the perfect soft boiled egg

September 23rd, 2014 by admin | Permalink

I am on a diet at the minute and so every piece of food that I get to eat matters hugely!

I just can’t seem to get my eggs right, could this be the answer?

Would you buy an Alfa Romeo?

I certainly wouldn’t, not that I have anything against this particular marque of italian car!

In fact I love the difference from  more predictable choices such as Ferrari.

I also love that grill but what is the point when it looks so ugly with the numberplate!

Google it and see what i mean;).

Connections – Let’s get creating together!

September 18th, 2014 by admin | Permalink

In my experience the best work comes from collaboration and working with people with different specialisms than your own.

For instance you may be a film or TV student and want actors in which case performance students would be ideal.

Or, you may require some animation in your work so what better than an animation student if you don’t have the skills yourself!

I plan to collate a directory of skills and services that may be good for collaborative projects so if you wish to be part of this please click on the link below.

Connections – A directory of collaboration.

Once I have collated this info I will make it available on this site.
