Sometimes it just goes and flows and the story grows everything builds and you’re thinking this looks great I just cant wait to see what it looks like all put together and then you stop.


Thats a different shot.

I wonder how many photos that affected? The whole lot? Its 2.30 in the morning and I have to start again? All because England is a centimetre from where it was when I started?

Stop. Motion. Stop motion.

Start Motion.

Pick it up.


Move it.


Twist it.


Turn it.


Im getting so frustrated I want to flip this table and burn shit god damn stupid fucking tiny little figures moving bit by bit and you don’t know the half of it.


Lights, camera. Action again.


Thats another photo in the bag. How many more have I got to add? There’s 300 on the camera, 400 on the mac, so I’Il need another ton and I’ve still got to sort the track. Happy, uplifting, the opposite to my 5am mood. I could really do with a snooze. Or some lunch because the fridge is devoid of food.



Nearly over.

Editing in the studio, on a 2 hour sleep hangover.
