Look who we bumped into at the premiere for Gnomeo & Juliet. Omg as the kids would say. The film was clever, clever, clever and hysterically funny. Oh and adorable.

Big big thanks to E1 Entertainment for the invite. Congrats to Kevin and Andy on that script. Clever.

I just liked this. Saw it on the street taped up on a window in Lille. Gorgeous. Simple. Inspiring.

We built a massive great big snowman in front of the house. And now, this is all that's left of him.

Lamington, the saddest puppy in the world, TM is coming soon to a shop near you.
The cards are with Full Colour Black. The link is for trade customers buying in bulk.
Next stop. Clothes.

This is an Acidna drawn by my seven year old. I think the heart is especially inspired. Wow. Wish I could draw like this.

A bit of a fun clip from animatic of Groove High. Boarded by the talented and always funny Stuart Evans. It was more graphic before... but it's still fun. I even like it more this way, because you have no clue what the heck just happened. Previously it shot from her nose. Now, it's a mystery... and gross(er?). Milk!

This is what happens when you become a brit. Egg and cress sandwiches, beer and good friends. Never has so much been owed to one person by so many, or something like that. Thanks. Or rather cheers.

Another day another talented comedy talent. Rasmus Hardiker, is going to be the next big thAng! Check out the trailer for Your Highness on Youtube. He's also a very nice guy. Once the Hollywood parties kick in, he might be less nice, but for now... you couldn't work with a nicer dude. He plays several parts in Groove High. Guys, girls, dogs, and a cloud. Yes, a cloud.

Ras Hardiker as the Scottish diva in training, Sasha... from the upcoming Groove High. This snippet hit the cutting room floor. It's cute, but ... well... it lives in cyberspace now. Sorry Ras.

Liz Sankey and a Lamington mug. What a coincidence. How'd she get one of those? When I have some spare time (hahahaha... oh that's a good one) I'll update this entry. Liz is one half of Summer Camp, the alarmly cool and trendy - and just signed to a major record deal - new band ... and she also happens to grace Lucky Fred with her one of her other wicked talents... which is comic acting and voice work. I've worked now with Lizzie for a few years on various things, but this is her first leading role (and she plays lots of other parts too) as Agent Brains, Fred's best friend and yes, secret agent! Cool, trendy, and funny. How does Liz do it?!

Paul Kaye, shamelessly plugging Lamington. He plays Friday, in Lucky Fred, the fantastically powered-can-do-almost-anything robot. Aka, the Annhilator Nine Oh Nine Oh Niner. There is more insane energy in Paul's little finger than most actors have in their whole body... well, maybe their thumb. What I'm trying to say is Paul brings an edgy frenzied energy to every part he plays and you can feel that voice stick to the tape! He's currently appearing in Mathilda up in Stratford with the RSC. If you haven't seen it yet, don't walk... run. Or drive. It's a bit far up the M40. And most definitely worth the trip. The music is by Tim Minchin and the kids are just too dang talented.

This is the talented Rupert Degas - Man of 2000 Voices - feeling all warm and fuzzy because he's been given a Lamington Mug at the last session of Lucky Fred recordings, on a bank holiday all the actors came in and we did what I think is our penultimate penultimate session for Lucky Fred. Dang, I'm going to miss this show. The energy of the group is fantastic and the scripts have gotten better and better every step of the way, which just encourages us to push ourselves more as well. Basically, it's been a lot of fun. Rupert plays 'Fred', the kid who uses a top secret military war machine to essentially cheat on everything from homework to romance and all things in between.
