HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY to our little Studio!!! And a BIG THANKS to our ‘inkers and thinkers’
To Celebrate we have released a small stop-motion Animation starring our unique Studio Characters ‘Sparky’ and ‘Inky’ you can find it on this link for Youtube. As Paper is the Anniversary gift for the 1st year we thought we’d create our animation using an old favourite Ink and Card. The Animation was made as part of an 18 hour challenge which took place yesterday where we created the artwork, cut it all out and then animated and edited it. Phew!
So we made it to the end of our Very First Year and hasn’t that year gone super fast! I’ve spent some time recently reflecting on the years before its important to remember how you got somewhere and the last few years have been challenging from working for shockingly bad people and being treated unfairly to working with great people where longtime friendships have been made. When I had my light bulb moment I was working an underwriter at HSBC it was 2012 and I realised I wanted to be inspired to get on with stuff, I knew I wanted to do something more. I was creative. loved writing stories and loved Gaming so much. Having children with Autism made me want to do something digital that I could include them in. This was my light bulb moment and I worked over the following years to try to achieve my aim of becoming a businesswoman in Digital Story-telling.
In 2016 I finally took the plunge. I knew I had to get on with it. I wasn’t getting any younger and I didn’t want to end up working back in a Bank unless I really had no choice. I started from home originally and looked around for a Studio. In July 2016 I found a little Studio at West Studios in Chesterfield and began building my company.
It hasn’t been easy, from the onset I started the Studio up from Nothing. Hence why all our productions carry the slogan ‘Starting from Nothing’ I have had no handouts or funding. Everything has been a result of personal savings and hard graft which makes the efforts and achievements so much more fulfilling.
Since then I’ve had some fantastic support and we would like to take this opportunity to dedicate our latest video released today to all those who have supported us.: Family, Friends, West Studios, D2N2, Derbyshire County Council and all my students and their families. I really appreciate your help, interest and direction and wouldn’t be here with out you guys.
So here’s to another year….
This is a quick slide show of our 18 hour animation.
