I have decided that it will take a different course of action to my first idea of a traditional animation and will instead be a "Stop Motion Animation" using "Brick Characters" like Lego etc.
Lego over the yearsThe first thing that I will need to do is to re-establish " film Scan studio" my old Graphic Design Trading Name and then start to story board the first few scenes so that I have a idea of what line the animation will take.
There is a whole range of lego kits available that should make an interesting story line to get the message across in a positive way and to hopefully raise Global awareness of Myositis.
Stop Motion animation is a relatively simple, if not time consuming way to produce animation. Stop motion technique was first used in 1897 for "Humpty Dumpty,s Circus" Stop motion using "Clay" has been used in many well known films over the years the most well known ones probably being the ones produced by "Aardman Animations" producers of "Wallace and Gromit"
Brickfilm is a relatively new way of producing stop motion animation using Lego and was started around the early 1980,s using software and a camera good high quality animation can be produced .

It is now that time of the afternoon that I need to check how the Olympic torch relay is progressing. It is Day 63 today and the torch is making its way from Maidstone to Guildford before being flown by Royal Navy Helicopter to The Tower of london this evening. The first Photograph shows the torch being carried by Boat down the River Medway at Maidstone and in the the second Photograph it is being carried on a cycle round the Brands Hatch motor racing Circuit.
