Set up !


This week I’ve been working on my set’s for the animated part of my film and looking for film locations for the live action parts. I started off making a basic base for my set, a simple construction that consisted of screwing two bits of wood together and then setting them on a table and screwing them to the wall.


I then glued two metal runners to the back wall of the base so I can slide different A1 back drops into place for different scenes – a very simple task that left me feeling like a D.I.Y geniusIMG01026-20130321-1458


I then went about making a back drop and rock props for the spoon crabIMG01035-20130321-1900

on Sunday I went to check out a top secret film location on the downs in Bristol – you know the bit with the goats , and found some very nice potential spots for filming, I’ve also got an actress sorted for the wildlife presenter so things are coming together quite nicely!!

As you will know if you’ve read my last couple of weeks I’ve been knitting bunting for my Gran’s 90th birthday and here are my efforts so far I’m pleased with my progress but still hoping to get a few more done but not to worry as I still have a few weeks. I also found some perfect ribbon to tie it all together with



and that’s this weeks antics – more coming soon !



my creative triathlon : puppet making ,drawing and knitting


After my successful tests last week with the llama puppet , this week I started rebuilding his bodily muscle. This time a little more shaped than before. I focused most of my attention on building up the muscles around the legs as well as leaving access points to get to the armature joints.

additional creative projects of the week included this weeks entry of 642 things to draw – which was a keyboard


I’ve also started a new little creative project on the side, my Gran turns 90 this year and we are throwing her a big birthday party and as she has always been a keen knitter. I have decided to make knitted bunting for the occasion this week I managed to fit in one a day which was great !here they are so far !
