I have been really busy over the last few months creating work for exhibition at The Lawrence Batley Theatre, Huddersfield.
The first exhibition was a solo exhibition called "The Last Curtain Call" featuring images of the Palace Theatre, Hudderfield which has been left to decay under 50 years of dust and is soon to be converted into student accommodation. If you didn't get chance to see the exhibition here are a few images for you to enjoy. More information can also be found here

The First Light animation project at Battyeford Primary School is going really well! The children have been amazing. So far they have completed one set and have already begun building another. I am really looking forward to helping the children make their film over the coming weeks! For regular updates on this project please visit the Magic Frames website.

Today was the first day of Magic Frames, an exciting filmmaking project I am working on with Fabric Lenny across four schools in Kirklees, funded by First Light Movies.
During our first day myself and Fabric Lenny worked with Y3 children at Battyeford Primary School to develop their story ideas, design the sets for the film and begin to construct cardboard props including a huge pirate ship. At the same time, Dan Mallaghan was working with children at Crossley Fields to help the children turn their amazing ideas into a script. There is a real buzz in the schools already and the children are fantastic! Please follow the Magic Frames website for regular updates from the children...

I have just finished delivering an animation project at Lydgate School in Batley alongside artist Fabric Lenny. Together we worked with 31 Year 3 children in the creation of a Viking Animation film. The children developed fantastic imagery, created animatable characters and built huge sets, along with writing and recording the narration and animating all the characters. The children were a joy to work with and we had great fun. Here are some images captured throughout the process. More can be found on the Kirklees Arts4All blog, along with the final film.
