Today I met James. He has a small office in the basement of the house. We talked for a while about his hopes and goals as a film maker. He’s really ambitious! Already I think he might find the disparity between what he imagines and what he currently has the skills to produce to be frustrating. We started small with a flip book. Using reference cards and a foldover clip just like at the Lynx centre in Weston. First I did a very simple and quick one of a circle expanding. I showed it to James and he ‘got it’ and immediately set to work on one of his own. He didn’t seem overly happy with the results, but for a first go it was really pretty good, and I told him as much!
