15th - 23rd April 2010
We've made it into the London Independent Film Festival! And this time The Girl even gets a wreath!
8th April 2010
BRITISH ANIMATION AWARDS
Tonight's the night at the BFI. Still don't know what to wear - animators don't seem to tend to dress for such occasions - and wondering what I'll do if I meet Tim Burton.

BEST OF BAAs Vol 8 DVD
The Girl has made it onto the Best Of DVD for the British Animation Awards. It will be on sale from 9th April and many bookshops around the world stock them apparently. Just so you know.
23rd February 2010
The Girl With Stories In Her Hair has a little review in the BFI Sights and Sounds magazine. I'm taking 'terminally sad' as a compliment, non?
BRITISH ANIMATION PUBLIC CHOICE AWARDS
The Girl has been nominated for the Public Choice at the BAAs! It tours around the UK throughout February and audiences get to vote for their favourites. It's hilarious to think my little film is sitting amongst big stars and Oscar winners! It's such a huge honour. And we made it onto the poster! Who'da thunk it?!
2nd February - 9th March 2010
In conjunction with the Shudder exhibition at The Drawing Room, Central Saint Martins commissions Matt West and myself to conduct a series of drawing and animation workshops for 18 - 24 year olds which culminates in the production of a film which is then screened at The Drawing Room.
10th - 14th November 2009
BRADFORD ANIMATION FESTIVAL
The Girl With Stories In Her Hair is nominated for the Best Student Film award so we make our way up north. Sadly, The Girl loses out to Bruce, an ace film by Tom Judd from the RCA, but it was a great opportunity to see a retrospective of Joanna Quinn's work at the National Media Museum, where the festival took place.
5th - 15th November 2009
The Girl With Stories In Her Hair screens at the last ever FilmStock in Luton. Fantastic films, fantastic people, and, though I am by no means an expert, I'm sure it is an independent festival which will be missed. Plus, got to drink wine with the manager from Spinal Tap long into the night. Can't be bad.
24th September 2009
Transcriptions, the outcome of our collaboration between Central Saint Martins and The National Gallery, screens in the Sainsbury Wing of The National Gallery. It's the first time I see my work on the big screen!
23rd Sepember 2009
NORWICH FILM FESTIVAL
'The Girl With Stories In Her Hair' is screened at The Norwich Film Festival as part of its Official Selection.
11th September - 4th October 2009
I show The Carriers III as a looped projection on the wall of Five Hundred Dollars Gallery in Vyner Street, as part of Stuart Pearson Wright's drawing show, 'Kunskog'.
"KUNSKOG is a personal selection of around a hundred drawings by the artist Stuart Pearson Wright. Giving licence to the idiosyncrasies of taste, the show embraces the gamut of contemporary drawing, from works by Turner Prize winner Gillian Wearing, and established artists, Paul Noble, Michael Landy, and Ged Quinn, to Australian polymath Rolf Harris, and people who 'draw in private', Stephen Merchant, Reece Shearsmith, Julian Barratt, John Hurt, and David Thewlis. Stuart has also invited non-artists to submit work for the show, including friends, their children and his own mother." Paul Noble!! Can you imagine?!
Rolf Harris played his board and Paul Noble told Stuart that his favourite was, "the stop frame animation on the floor of the little people projected onto the twiggy landscape!"
Paul Noble!! Can you imagine?!
