untangle me please


Phoebe and I's completed animation and pitch for a competition of new ways to use the internet - we launch into the wide world our plan for a Climate Change Action Directory. We'll never win, we're up against people building schools in Kenya, but it seemed a good way to put it out there.

From an animation point of view it is a low quality and in 4:3 out of necessity to fit the format of the video pitch. It looks better in big and 16:9.

Follow the link to watch our animation followed by a delightfully stuttering pitch to Microsoft, and give us a thumbs up if you agree.

'She flew' I claim as I sift through the tip. A puny mew pines 'yin!' from the nub of a mauve jug, perched on a sheer face of muck. I say that hokey pokey witch put paid to our town. Her voice that charmed lava from sand on Oslo beach. If my Nordic bones sing true - and they do - that hitter of poison won't live to complete her sixer of evil. Nay, I'll quell my rage, an' go. Butter won't melt in my gab. Cover the zit in gauze and brush off the ants, I'm leaving to put a dent in a demon. Near her door there's a doo of peace, but my id says no: the time of deliverance is nigh.

This is what happens if you play a game of scrabble, write down all the words played in order, then make a story out of them. You have to use them in the order played, and you can use little connectives aswell. It's funny how connections appear. This is a game from last summer between me, my grandma and my mum. I rediscovered the story today.

Sauron's eye

Phoebe working on Sauron's Eye, the lightbox we built this weekend. Well, not really built. it's a wine box from Majestic with a striplight in and an underbed storage box lid balanced on top. Total cost 7.99. We have been working on Sauron's Eye for ten hours today, we have done four seconds worth of drawings. It has been fun acting out the parts. I had a leaping owl and Phoebe had a struggling rabbit.
