Needless to say with my stop motion centric mind the ones using this type of animation were my favourite, but you can make up your own minds.
Crikey you go off sick for a short while and come back to a deluge! Peter’s desk has disappeared under a tidal wave of packages and despite the closing date having already passed still them come.
There are now approximately 200 entries to this years flip and my, what a mammoth task Peter and the judges have to process them all. I don’t envy them one bit It’s time consuming enough to be adding them to the flip map (more to be added soon) once they’ve been processed let alone sit, watch and have to review every single one!
Now for something not so different from me….Stop Motion.
While I was out in quarantine my colleague Ren sent me a link to stop motion animation set to the dulcet tones of Bloc Party. This made me feel better for two reasons. I like stop motion and I like Bloc Party, and although I know I promised to be more varied with my postings with my first post on my return it felt fitting to share!
