There are two conferences about animation coming up in quick succession and I’m lucky enough to be going to both of them. Animation Evolution will take me home to Edinburgh College of Art. I’m joining a panel discussion on the legacy of Norman McLaren. It will be exciting to talk about him in Scotland because he isn’t really whooped up as much as he bloody should be, so the whooping starts on friday and I shall let you know how it goes. Next week is Animation Deviation organised by Vicky Smith at UWE. I’m taking my pad and pencil and will make a small report on my return.
