About forty years ago ,when I was in my first or second term at Sheffield Poly ,I was involved in a collaborative , creative project .
Ged, Lee and I formed a group , and between us we made a stop/go animated children’s story and book ‘Oscar the Octopus’ .I did the illustrations, they did the script and all the techy stuff and we spent the best part of 4 Thursday mornings ,pissing about and putting fictional sea creatures in uncompromising situations . .Oh what fun we had .
Roll on to present day …Lee has retired from teaching in a Doncaster Comp . I’m doing what I’m doing ……..and Ged Doherty has collaborated with Colin Firth to form Raindog Films and has produced 2 blockbusters this year ‘ Eye in the Sky ‘ and ‘Loving ‘ .
We all have to start somewhere
